The 2017 State of the World’s Plants report provides an overview of knowledge of the world's plants. Building on the success of the 2016 report, it looks not only at the numbers of plants, but also why they are important and what makes some plants more resilient than others to threats of climate change, wildfires and pests.

State of the World's Plants 2016

The 2016 State of the World’s Plants report describes what we know about plants such as how many plant species there are and new plant discoveries in 2015. It also assesses our knowledge of global threats to plants and details international trade, as well as policies and international agreements to deal with some of the threats.
