    Imagine this: you step outside and feel the barren, rough, red Earth beneath your feet. There's not a single plant in sight-no rustling of the leaves, no mighty towering trees to block the severe winds, and the scorching heat of the sun searing upon your face because there's no shade. And when you take a whiff of air, you feel nothing filling up the space inside your lungs, liberating your body's activities. What's wrong with this picture? It's not possible, of course. Even though plants aren't ...
