Plants under pressure - a global assessment

Kew, together with the Natural History Museum, London and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has completed a global analysis of extinction risk for the world's plants.

The project, entitled Sampled Red List Index for Plants, provides a major baseline for plant conservation and is the first time that the true extent of the threat to the world's estimated 380,000 plants is known.
