Half of Plant Species Could Vanish


About 1/2 of the earth's plant species are facing extinction. The species most at risk include those that live in only small geographical ranges and specific habitats. The World Conservation Union and two botanists in the US have different thoughts about the actual number of threatened species of plants. The IUCN states that 13% of the worlds plants are under threat, but US botanists say that at least 22% are going to be extinct, and as much as 47% are in danger.
