FoPD2021 -UK/ Britain’s Vanishing Plants – What are the plants becoming extinct in the UK? – 18 May 2021


Often overlooked by many, plants play really important roles in British ecosystems. But human practices such as the draining of wetlands, intensive agriculture or overgrazing, as well as climate change, are making some of Britain’s plants numbers decrease dramatically even to the point of extinction, from ferns to grasses, from flowers to carnivorous plants.

Join botanist Fred Rumsey in a conversation to find out more about these vanishing plants and the efforts that are being carried on around the country to recover them.


18th May 2021, 12.30-13.00 BST.
