Plant Blindness test

Plant blindness is the inability of people to see or notice the plants in their own environment. The term is from a theory put together by Wandersee & Schussler (1999).

Plants have enormous importance in our biosphere and in human affairs. Individual species each have unique biological and aesthetic features. Humans though tend to be anthropocentric, and rank plants as even more inferior than other animals. This attitude is part of plant blindness.
