When you are biking out in the country, I assume, the plants that grow there are part of a very particular ecosystem. An ecosystem is an established group of plants, insects, animals, etc,in a system of reciprocity that keeps each aline and thriving. If you pick one flower, it probably won't make much difference, but if every other biker also picks a flower, then the ecosystem will be off balance. It's important to understand this when we go about our business in the world. A question to ask ourselves: "How is what I'm doing effecting the world around me?"
