Plant extinction 'bad for all species'

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

More than 500 species of plants have disappeared in the past 250 years - double the number of birds, mammals and amphibians recorded as extinct.

A new study found that 571 plant species have disappeared - four times more than the current listing of extinct plants.

Scientists at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and Stockholm University discovered plant extinction is happening up to 500 times faster than "natural" background rates of extinction - the normal rate of loss in earth's history before human intervention.
