The vegetative composition and cover of our Earth has been extremely varied ever since plant life began to colonize and conquer the dry land several hundred million years ago. Plant species evolved with varying genetic structures, composition, and morphological complexity, and species of terrestrial plants have expanded over a wide range of topography. The habitats thus acquired extend frm coastal lowland to the summits of high mountains, and the plants have colonized a great diversity of substrates, forming the main basis of a series of successions and various types of communities: swamps and grassland, brush and forests.
