Are Plants and Animals interdependent?

Let Us Embrace Culture For Growing Trees

How are plants and animals interdependent? Everything living in this universe depends on another living counter part. They basically depend on each other primarily for survival. This includes needs such as :

  • Food
  • Protection
  • Shelter
  • Reproduction

By depending on each other, they end up building several relationships. These relationships are witnessed at various points in the food chains.

“A man doesn’t plant a tree for himself. He plants it for posterity.”

Alexander Smith

So what does animals need from plants:

  1. Habitat for a home and shade from the scorching sun.
  2. Vital raw materials for various activities such as making food.
  3. Food source.
  4. To absorb the carbon dioxide they produce.
  5. To produce oxygen level needed for their survival.

And what does plants need from animals:

  1. Reproduction , that is, carrying of the pollen and cross fertilisation
  2. To help digest the complex substances.
  3. To produce the needed carbon dioxide.

Do other living organisms, humans included, need plants?

Yes, they are living organisms and do need plants in various ways. Including:

  • Humans are a very vital component in the living world, yet the most destructive part too. Good thing is, we are able to control both extremes when we choose to. We can decide to limit our negative impacts and conserve mother nature. Or we can decide to feed our greed and destroy mother nature.
  • Humans are important in both the food chains and food webs. Help to make them complete.
  • Just like other animals, humans needs plants for the same reasons stated above.
  • Humans needs bacteria in plants to ferment their food.
  • Humans needs plant for food.

“He plants trees to benefit another generation.”

Caecilius Statius

  1. These are excellent points. As one who adores both plants and animals, I do believe the significance of relying on each other is critical.

    When we are reckless with our actions in nature, the impact we have is far greater than most could ever begin to imagine. It’s heartbreaking.
