All life depends on plants. Threats to plant communities range from the destruction of large areas of trees through logging, to pollution from fertilisers, car exhausts, factory emissions and sewage. Increased fertility as a result of fertiliser pollution and nitrogen deposition results in a decline in the diversity of plant species with vegetation becoming increasingly dominated by fewer, more competitive species
