ABSTRACT

There are many varieties of plant in the world. Plants are essential to the balance of
nature and people’s lives. As a critical part of the ecosystem, plants provide oxygen for
organisms to survive. They are able to reduce the problem of pollution, by using
carbon-dioxide. Plants are also the basis of most food webs as producers of food for
herbivores and ultimately carnivores. Plants also provide shelter for animals, clean and
filter water and help prevent soil erosion.

Historically, plants have provided a source of inspiration for novel drug compounds, as
plants derived medicines have made large contributions to human health and well being.

Moreover plants against microorganisms in the environment in a lot of problems are
used as antimicrobial.
