Natural Act

More than one fifth of the world’s plant species are in danger of extinction according to a new study by the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, London. The red list of the ertado of the plants for the first time reflects the true scope of the threat to more than 380,000 species of plants identified throughout the world. The study took five years to complete and was made the Royal Botanical Gardens and Museum of Natural history in London based on their files in which have around 13 million specimens of plants, together with the data of the International Union for the conservation of nature (IUCN). The report says that human activities 81% are much higher than the 19% natural threats to plants and biological diversity. This danger is driven by agriculture, logging, plantations and livestock. This step probably we will stay very promptly only with the idea of the existence of plants and probably only thing we have on hand are drawings of flowers for coloring and remember that once filled the planet of bright green with a beautiful mixture of colors. Returning to the topic, the overwhelming amount of degradation of plants poncentaje is happening specifically in the rainforests where the abundance of them has always been a common denominator.

In this aspect up to beautiful plants such as the Astromelia or the types of poppy can be disadvantaged and be defeated by extinction. It is not only the world in development or in the Western world, who are primarily responsible for this future catastrophe, we are all inhabitants of the planet who should not act sustainably, alcontrario must learn to act in reverse, in combination with nature and trying to act in a sustainable way. We have to take drastic measures to stop this and we need to understand more about how to use resources in the nature without affecting them. Plants are the basis of biodiversity and its importance in times of climatic uncertainty, economic and political has been overlooked for too long.
