    Plant Defenses Most, if not all, organisms have some type of defense mechanism that allows them to protect themselves. Plants in particular are sometimes vulnerable to outside factors, and for this very reason many plants have evolved to carry certain traits. These traits can allow them to protect the growth of the plant, as well as diminish action upon the plant, ie – via bacterial and/or viral activity. In a recent study, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, or the USDA, an investigation
