Abstract The processes that threaten 240 Indonesian threatened plants were identified and categorized based on a comprehensive review of the published literature and elicitation of information from experts. Intrinsic biological factors and habitat loss are the major causes of plant endangerment in Indonesia (affecting 83 and 82% of species respectively), followed by overexploitation (64%) and natural factors (6%). The dominant threats vary between major plant groups, with habitat loss being…

Threat syndromes and conservation of the Australian flora
It is found that most species are threatened by a number of interacting factors – threat syndromes, and several future risks may be mitigated effectively by simple, low-cost changes in policy.
Threats to Vertebrate Species in China and the United States
The greater frequency of overexploitation in China stems from China's larger, poorer, and more rural population, along with widespread trade in wildlife products, and the apparent lower frequency of alien species may reflect neglect of this issue by Chinese scientists.

Are listed threatened plant species actually at risk
Turnover in the composition of extinct flora lists in Australia suggests that the lists of threatened species may not be sufficiently reliable to form the basis for reporting on the state of the environment or be a reliable guide for the allocation of scarce conservation resources among plant species.

Biologists are nearly unanimous in their belief that humanity is in the process of extirpating a significant portion of the earth's spe­ cies. The ways in which we are doing so reflect the magnitude
Biodiversity hotspots for conservation priorities
A ‘silver bullet’ strategy on the part of conservation planners, focusing on ‘biodiversity hotspots’ where exceptional concentrations of endemic species are undergoing exceptional loss of habitat, is proposed.
