The plants are dying!

Hmm:

The remaining 4,000 species were assessed and the level or risk based on a combination of the absolute number of plants estimated in the wild, the known decline, and the total area in which they are thought to live.

Is this using the old method of how many species live in an area, if that area gets used then x % of the species will go extinct? That Edward O Wilson thing? That method that we\’re pretty much certain is wrong?

If 90% of the forest goes then 90% of the species do? When in fact, when we observe what does happen when 90% of the forests go (US SE, Brazil Atlantic forest), we find that 1% or 2% of the species go?

Hmm.
