Results revealed that 23 threatened plant species belonging to 22 genera and 15 different families were traditionally used for curing various health disorders. Taxus wallichiana was a lone gymnosperm while all others were angiosperms. Majority of the species were perennial herbs but reports of biennial herbs and perennial trees were not uncommon.
FPESA assessments (seven total) were uniformly positive about the paper and its relevance to the primary FPESA hypothesis. Some assessors noted that its accuracy depends on the reliability of the species and population data. (The accuracy of the data on threatened species is less certain than data on national human populations.
The research paper deals with the 79 threatened flowering plants of Malegaon and Baglan forest ranges in Nasik District of Maharashtra. Out of the 79 species there are 9 Critically Endangered, 19 Endangered, 28 Vulnerable, Lower Risk 21, (including 16 Near Threatened and Least Concerned 4) and Data Deficient 3.A research paper is an expanded essay that presents your own interpretation or evaluation or argument. When you write an essay, you use everything that you personally know and have thought about a subject. When you write a research paper you build upon what you know about the subject and make a deliberate attempt to find out what experts know. A research paper is any kind of academic writing.In this study we compiled fire response information for SWWA’s threatened plant species and undertook a bioregional assessment of variation in fire interval over the last 40 years. We determined the fire response traits of 242 (60%) of the region’s 401 extant threatened species.
The assessment of status for each species whether threatened, endemic, rare or economically important was based on the national list of threatened Philippine plants (Fernando et al. 2008) the IUCN.Read More
Already, about 15,000 medicinal plant species may be threatened with extinction worldwide. Experts estimate that the Earth is losing at least one potential major drug every two years. “The land abounds in these natural remedies and to classify the plants, give their names and describe their properties, the presence of a botanist would be required. It is certain that many illnesses are cured.Read More
Of the 80,000 temperate plant species, about 8,000 are threatened. ADVERTISEMENTS: In a more recent estimate, a total of 26,106 species of plants were considered threatened by the World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC, 1994). This number account for 8% of the world’s plant species. Of these, 3,632 species of plants belong to the category Endangered, 5,687 to Vulnerable, 11,485 to Rare.Read More
The common assessment method is a consistent approach to the assessment and listing of nationally threatened species across the Australian jurisdictions. It is based on the best practice standard developed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), as used to create the Red List of Threatened Species, with some amendments to suit the Australian context.Read More
An ethnobotanical study was conducted from March, 2011 to October, 2012 to enumerate the diversity of traditionally used threatened medicinal plants in biodiversity rich temperate Himalayan ranges of Bandipora district, Kashmir, India. Ethnomedicinal data was gathered using semi-structured interviews, focus group discussions and walk-in-the-woods with local knowledgeable elders, tribals.Read More
Today, with around 20% of plant species threatened with extinction, the author argues that unless botanic gardens shift their efforts toward the conservation, management and use of plants, the loss of plant diversity will stifle human innovation, adaptation, and resilience. The enormous body of taxonomic knowledge, skills, data, and collections built up over the past two centuries is.Read More
Monitoring the pollinators of threatened and endangered plant species: Understanding the pollinator systems of threatened plants is essential to survival and restoration plans. In Southern California, P2 is studying the pollinator associations of the federally listed Braunton’s milkvetch ( Astragalus brauntonii ) and the locally endemic and threatened Los Angeles species Santa Susana Tar.Read More
They both have research interests in rare plant conservation using demographic and quantitative genetic techniques. Mike Maunder is the director of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Coral Gables, FL 33156, and chair of the IUCN Species Survival Commission Plant Conservation Committee. He has interests in ex situ plant conservation research, international policy development, and capacity.Read More
The Plants Under Pressure project aims to quantify how threatened plants are across the world. The question of how threatened plants are is difficult to answer. Despite more than 300 years of scientific discovery, thousands of new species are described every year, and some remote regions of the world remain poorly understood.Read More
