plants are the very much important part of nature. It's occurrence made our life possible. In fact, it is the great source of oxygen. It preserves the nature and balances the ecosystem. There are a number of plant species. It is estimated that there are about 375,000 species of plants. These includes seed, herbs, sherbs, trees, etc. But only 297,326 species of plants have been identified. About 2,000 new plant species are discovered or described every year, many of which are already on the verge of extinction.

 There are about 3.7 million different known plants, which is around 12% of all flowering plants on Earth, with a large number still needing to be discovered. In the United States there are over 350 thousand types of wild plants. The most species-rich regions include South America with nearly 2 million species, and Southeast Asia with 1.2 million species.
Plant species richness increases with altitude. This is often attributed to the greater availability of water at higher elevations, but more recent studies suggest that this effect may be largely an illusion. In the Andes, for example, plants are not more abundant at lower altitudes, but appear to increase with altitude in a wide range of habitats.
In many parts of the world, tropical rainforests support extremely species-rich forests with hundreds of thousands to millions of plant species. Examples include a few regions in Mexico around Pico de Orizaba and Popoluca in Chiapas, and the Bolivian Amazon basin.
