In Defense of Plants

"Since plants provide the ultimate power base for all the food and energy chains and webs that hold our natural world together, they also form the hubs of community structure and thus the centers of our focus."
- John Eastman

Look at how striking the iridescence of this beautiful Microsorum thailandicum is! Sadly its beauty may inevitably be its downfall. Endemic to limestone rock crevices in the Chumphon Province of Thailand, over-harvesting for the horticultural trade may be driving this plant to extinction. More work needs to be done to assess the abundance of this species in the wild. Be wary of places selling such species!
