Abstract
Plants provide the energy for maintenance, growth, reproduction, and locomotion of almost every living organism on our planet. That energy, originating from the sun, flows from plants through a web of consumers and decomposers and gradually returns the carrier molecule CO2 to the atmosphere. Fires, occurring naturally from lightening strikes or provoked by man¿s activities, are a more sudden but chemically similar, release of solar energy accumulated by plants. Humans and some other animals use plant material for construction but humans alone have combusted biomass under controlled conditions to provide heat for warmth, cooking, and both stationary power and traction.
