Earth's Resources: Plants

Hello readers. I am doing a science project from the East Dragon Den.
I learned that a conifer is a type of plant with needle-like leaves that uses cones to reproduce, an evergreen is a plant whose leaves or needles stay green during the winter and ferns are plants without flowers that use spores instead of seeds to reproduce and that grow in moist shady environments.  I also learned that a flower is a reproductive structure of a plant where fertilization takes place, a fruit is a plant structure that contains seeds and grows from a flowering plant and that a fuel is any material that can be used for energy. I also learned that omnivores are animals that eats plants as well as other animals, photosynthesis in the process when plants use sunlight to make food, a plant is an organism that is made of many cells, makes it's own food from photosynthesis and cannot move and that a seed is a plant structure that contains a young plant, food supply and protective coat. I learned that we use many resources including renewable resources and nonrenewable resources. we can run out of our natural resources if we are not careful, that is why we should conserve. I had to answer three essential questions:
1. Why do we consider plants and forests as renewable resources?   My answer:  We consider plants and trees renewable resources because we can grow back trees and plants.
2. What are some uses of harvested plants?  My answer: Some uses of harvested plants are clothing, food and shelter.
3. Why is conservation of trees and forests important?  My answer:  Conservation of trees and forests is important because if we don't conserve our trees and forests then we could lose all of our resources and die.
Here is a list of renewable resources:
  • freshwater
  • trees
  • plants
  • saltwater
  • clay
