The best floral houses are a testament to the power of a garden, says a team of scientists.
The research, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that garden plants are the best at absorbing carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) and other gases that are released by plants.
The team studied more than 1,000 plants that have been in gardens since 1872, when the French botanist and botanists Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Alphonse Perrin published a paper describing their work.
In the next decade, they studied 1,500 more, all of them from France.
The flowers they studied are often the oldest and most spectacular flowers, says team member Jean-Pierre Bérénice, of the University of Paris.
“These flowers are really the most interesting of the lot, because they have so many unique features that are unique to their species,” he says.
These include a single orchard flower, which has four pairs of leaves and a single, narrow stem; a fragrant, fragrant flower, each with three pairs of flowers; a plant with two flowers that each have a different function; and a flowering plant that produces a flower with its petals in the air.
“If you think about it, flowers are the first thing we see when we look at nature, and they are the thing that we think of as the most important part of our existence,” Bérenice says.
The researchers studied flowers of more than 70 species, from cacti and water lilies to roses and the nightshade.
They also looked at the effects of plants on soil and climate.
In one study, they found that the flowers of plants with large numbers of blooms were healthier and more productive, and tended to be larger.
But this could be because the plants produced fewer seeds, says Béroun, because plants have to fertilise a larger amount of soil for the plants to reproduce.
“You have to give up a lot of resources to make these flowers bloom,” he said.
The authors also found that blooms in flowers had less water than in other plants.
They say this is because plants produce more water when they are stressed, such as when there are cold temperatures.
“In a cold climate, you don’t have enough water to produce a flower,” Broun says.
“So when there is a lot more CO 2 in the atmosphere, the flowers grow faster.
It’s a very good effect for the plant.”
This may be because flowers are also sensitive to CO 2 , which means they can be damaged by CO 2 levels when they’re in bloom, which makes the flowers less attractive to insects and predators, the team says.
A garden can also change the chemistry of soil, the authors say.
This can affect the water balance in the soil, which can affect flower growth and flower quality.
And plants have an effect on the plants that they feed on, the researchers say.
“What is interesting is that plants that are eaten by animals are not going to produce more flowers than those that are not,” Berenic says.
But, he says, this may not be the case.
“When we feed animals on flowers, we feed on the flowers that are already there,” he explains.
“We feed on plants that were there before we put them there.
So that means we have to get rid of plants that we don’t need.”
“These are very exciting findings,” says Mark Schuster, a plant ecologist at the University
