eco structure ii

Fig, Banyan, and Mangrove tree species show many possibilities with their aerial root configuration for genetic manipulation, creating sustainable structures from plant species. As our understanding of the human and plant genomes continues, we will gain the ability to manipulate these structures at the genetic level, both during embryonic development and after. As the world’s population explodes this could be one means to create sustainable inhabitable structures which simultaneously replenish the plant count which has seen a dramatic decrease from deforestation.
