Flora It is a Latin term that allows naming the goddess of flowers . It is all vegetable species that are in a certain region or the discipline and documents that are responsible for its study.
As we say, the term that concerns us comes from the name of the goddess Flora of Roman mythology that was considered the deity of gardens, spring and flowers. In honor of this figure, whose equivalent in Greek mythology was Cloris, a great party took place between the months of April and May that was known as Floralia and that was conformed by a series of dances and drinks with which it was tried to celebrate spring and the renewal of the so-called life cycle.
The botany It is the discipline that is dedicated to describe the plants of an area, studying their most relevant characteristics, their geographical distribution, their flowering moments, etc. The flora has particular characteristics according to the ecosystem and the era of which they are part.
It is possible to distinguish between the flora (which focuses on the existing number of species) and the vegetation (focused on how species are distributed and what their relative relevance is). This means that the flora and other environmental factors are what establish the characteristics of the vegetation.
On the other hand, flora can be classified as native flora (originally from a region, it can grow without the man intervene), the garden or agriculture flora (cultivated by people ) and the weed flora (those species classified as unusable and, therefore, undesirable).
The flora is used by man to meet various needs. Certain leaves, fruits and seeds they are used as food , while wood, rubber and bark can be used for manufacturing products or building development. Similarly, the wildlife take advantage of certain species of flora as food, so that it subsists thanks to it. For example: cows (fauna) feed on grass (flora).
In relation to the term we are addressing, we have to underline the existence of a series of concepts that take it as an important part of them. Thus, we find the "Flora clock". A word is that is used in the field of Botany to refer to a table where the different times of the day are represented and that shows the moments in which the plants open their flowers.
In the same way, we cannot ignore the term "flora calendar". Specifically with it, what is defined is an annual table that is used by botanical professionals to establish the seasons in which plants bloom.
In addition to everything mentioned, we can express that Flora is also a Spanish brand that operates in the field of what is cardiovascular health. Thus, in the market there are many of its products such as cookies, milk or margarines that pursue that those who consume them reduce their cholesterol levels and strengthen their heart.
