About 17,000 identified species of trees, flowers, herbs, ferns, mosses and other flora are at home in Canada. They are found in every type of habitat, from the tundra in the north to the mixed-woods forests in the south. Each species is necessary for the ecosystems to function well, plus they are responsible for providing humans with building materials and oxygen, amongst other things.
