Analysis Shows Staggering Plant Extinctions

A new analysis of global research published in Nature Ecology & Evolution reveals that nearly 600 plant species have gone extinct in the past 250 years, twice the total extinctions of mammals, birds, and amphibians combined. Help save New England's rare plants by donating to the Seed Ark, our project to bank the seeds of our region's 388 globally and regionally rare species by 2020. Donate now or learn more.
