Sometimes we take our dependence on the world's biodiversity for granted. Sometimes we don't even realize just how important certain plants, for example, are in our everyday lives. We looked at two plants today: corn and cotton. At first glance, we figured that we rely on corn for food, and cotton for clothing. We explored that a little further and realized there are about a zillion uses for corn and cotton!
