The Most Common Endangered Plants
Endangered plants are those plants which are on the extent of extinction that means on the point of extinct and once they become extinct they will remain as history. Some of the world’s most endangered plants are the rafflesia flower, the green pitcher plant, and the hart’s tongue fern. There are many other endangered plants and trees apart from these that need to be conserved. Most endangered plants become that way because of deforestation and general habitat deconstruction, which typically occurs when forests are leveled to make way for homes and businesses. Conservation efforts to save these endangered plant species might include cloning and growth in protected locations. In spite of these efforts, many plants may not survive extinction if the primary reason behind their endangerment is not addressed and resolved.
The rafflesia flower is native to the rain forests of Indonesia. Rafflesia flowers are typically considered to be very unusual looking plants and might grow up to 3 feet (1 m) in width. Rafflesia flowers are normally a bright red color once they bloom, and they do not usually live for more than a week after blooming. Native to Georgia and South Carolina in the southern United States, the pitcher plant is another of the world’s most endangered plants. Pitcher plants grow naturally in swamps and bogs, but these areas are becoming fewer and fewer.
