Does the economy effect plant growth at all?

    It does if farmers can’t afford to plant crops, or if a logger decides it’s more cost-effective to clear-cut a forest for quick profit rather than logging sustainably. It depends on what plants you’re talking about. Those cultivated and grown for a profit, or harvested for a profit, yes. Plants that just happen to be out in the wild, doing their thing? A personal garden in a residential area that serves as decoration? Not so much.

    I would agree with the above post, and add that economic growth generally entails urban development, which has a detrimental effect on natural ecosystems affected by increased land usage.  Obviously, paving a parking lot in what was once a forest will hamper plant growth and life.
