Bio Diversity


Large-scale global change and direct human pressures on the natural environment are leading to extensive biodiversity loss with major impacts on society. Forty per cent of plant species are now threatened with extinction, including important wild relatives of crop plants, sources of new life-changing drugs, and providers of vital ecosystem services. Urgent action is essential to minimize extinctions and to protect and restore biodiverse and resilient ecosystems.

Evaluating threats to species.

  • Species conservation status assessments are essential to facilitate monitoring, raise awareness, and prioritise in-situ and ex-situ action to prevent extinctions. Conservation assessments are routinely included in our taxonomic and floristic outputs.

    1. As chairs of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Species Survival Commission (SSC) Conifer Specialist Group, we monitor the status of the world’s more than 700 conifer taxa, 34 per cent of which are threatened with extinction.
    2. We supply conservation assessments for Sapotaceae to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN)/Species Survival Commission (SSC) Global Tree Specialist Group.
