Community

“It is natural to look upon wild plantings with a kind of supernatural reverence; even ecologists admit  how little we know about plant interaction within communities.”

What is a plant community?

“ a community of compatible species of interlocking vertical and horizontal layers that cover the ground.”

“Naturally occurring plant communities are the result of millions of years of natural selection and succession”.  

“We can only understand the complexity that is a natural plant community “ by observing and embracing the wisdom of it.”
