The process across how the plants grow and produce more quantity of vegetable biomass is one of the most important biological processes in the planet.

An international team of scientists has presented a new  study that demonstrates that, as the vegetable  species in the  world become extinct the natural habitats become less productive and contain a minor quantity of plants.This  situation can compromise in a severe way many important benefits that we receive of the nature.

The productivity of the vegetables regulates the capacity of the nature to absorb of the atmosphere the greenhouse gases, as the carbon dioxide. Besides  this regulates the capacity of the different ecosystems to produce oxygen, food, fibers and biocombustibles. The extinction of species might put in danger the benefits that the society receives of the nature.

The study directed by the University of California, summarizes the results of 44 experiments realized in places of the whole planet, which simulate the extinction of vegetable species, and demonstrates that the ecosystems with fewer species produce up to 50 per cent less of vegetable biomass that those with “more “natural” levels of diversity.

This study shows that the rich communities in diversity are more productive because the vegetables “complement each other” in how they use the biological resources. In other words, the different vegetable species  play the only roles in the environment.

The extinction of species(kinds) is one of the most pronounced(marked) environmental changes of our time, and many scientists now raise that the Earth is in the middle of the sixth extinction in mass of the history of the life in our planet. Some estimations suggest that 50 per cent of the known species(kinds) they might be extinct at the end of the present century.
