Let's face it- Plants are important- and I don't think there is anybody in this world who could really argue with me on that one. And native plants critical to animal biodiversity- more so than many of us think. But why do so many people have an aversion to botany? Why did my fellow biology students scoff at learning plants?
I have a theory- it comes down to plants are just darn hard to master. Learning the names of native plants and the habitats they frequent is a life time journey. Many people today are looking for the 5 second answer. If you study plants, it's a life time commitment, but the journey is quite a ride, one that I'll hope you consider taking.
