Plants Are Going Extinct 350 Times Faster Than Ever Before

Plants are going extinct 350 times faster than ever before … and invasive species are one of the key drivers!

Earlier this year a United Nations report predicted that up to one million species and half of all plant life on earth may be extinct by the end of the century. Additionally, a recent study documented that 571 plant species have disappeared over the past 250 years. Now, a new study shows that plants have been lost at a rate that is 350 times greater than the average rate of plant extinctions observed in the fossil record.
