There is hidden value in nature. Nearly half the medicines we take derive from nature. The chemicals that they use from the plants, animals and microorganisms are for their own survival.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
