Answer:

(1) Plants are the only link in the food chain that are capable of transferring inorganic chemicals in to organic compounds for the consumption of other living organisms in the ecosystems.

(2) These nutrients are then transferred from one trophic level tot another in a food web.

(3) If plants did not transfer these materials, animals would have been deprived of the nutrients required for their survival.

(4) There would have been no food chains and food webs in the absence of plants.

That is why, it is said that, The existence of plant life is integral to the continuity and development of most ecosystems.
