Plant extinction


The following is a list of extinct plants only.


Declaring a plant extinct is challenging, simply because they are often very difficult to spot, and there can be no certainty that these are the last living individuals. Indeed, a recent report found 431 plant species previously thought to be extinct have been rediscovered. So, real plant extinction rates and future extinctions are likely to far exceed current estimates.
