Very interesting, and a reminder about why it is important to treat the planet gently; there is no knowing what other surprises it has in store for us; some of which may be of medical value, as well as aesthetic.

It is so encouraging to see that we are getting new species of plants, maybe the climate change is causing it? Maybe the Earth is now bringing forth plants to take the climate change? I would feel so much better if I knew the answer to that. Shows our planet has hope even though it is getting warmer and dryer. We really need to take care of our planet, it is the only place we have to live.

Thanks Cher for the link to the article by Richard Gray. Excellent article and wonderful discoveries. The fact that there might be upwards of 70,000 new species to be found is mind boggling. Read and noted.

TU Cher.....discovery of new plant and animal species is if mankind would just just wipe them out as they are prone to do.

Those plants should be left alone in order to survive.
