I came across this on the science daily site
for the original journal article please see
the article is written for a intelligent popular audience and attempts to explain the reason why plant and animal species are on the IUCN endangered red list.
The red list now goes to over 8,000 species and can be largely accounted for by over exploitation in the wild and agriculture. Climate change is another reason with much potential for future concern.
I urge people to read the article
