My feelings on Phenology of plantPosted on 2018-04-14 11:35:35 by Yoesel Dema Seldrup IX C from Pelrithang Middle Secondary School
Phenology of the plant is defined as the study of periodic plants and animals' life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and inter annual variation in the climate, as wellas habitat factors. Plants are the silent workers of our planet, they want to live and also help other livving beings to live.
Humans depend on plant in numerous ways. The one reason we depend on plants is for the consumption. Plants have the unique ability of producing their own food through a process called photosynthesis. Plants provide animals with shelters, produce clothing materials, medicines, paper products and many necessery things that are useful to all the living beings.
There's so much to be grateful for our lives - most of which are the things that are simple and easy to overlook: good food, clean water, oxygen, green enviroment etc. For all these, I always think about plants, and I realized that this is a major area of overlooking for most of the people. Also i feel very grateful and obliged that plants provide us our lives everyday through our breath and times of sickness of medicine. Phenology of the plants eventually means about change in plants with changing climate. When the change occurs within the different seasons such as during spring the plant blossoms and during autumn the leaves fall doen from the trees. When I see these changes, I feel gloomy comparing our life with those seasonal plants, reminding us of impermanence.
Making a start from a minor seed and growing up to beautiful tree, literally takes a long span of time. Relating to this statement, I feel so elated that I have learnt that it takes time to become successful in life. Also I learnt to be patient as everything takes its own time. Nature is the greatest teacher, we need to have the inner eyes to learn the values.
Therefore learning about the plants have given us the oppertunity to realise the importance of it role in sustaining our life on this mother earth.
