Plants in Danger  –​​​​​ ​ ​An Update on Extinct Species

Just like animals, plants are going through an important biodiversity crisis. Many species from isolated areas are facing extinction due to human activities. Using distribution data from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), I designed these infographics to inform on this important yet underrepresented topic. Here, species labeled as Extinct have not been seen anywhere despite extensive research efforts, and species labeled as Extinct in the Wild remain in cultivation centers such as botanical gardens. Quick facts:

     →  As of 2020, 500 plant species are considered extinct
     →  98 (19.6%) were endemic to Madagascar and 64 (12.8%) lived on Hawaiian islands
     →  185 (37%) have not been seen in the past century
