According to Kew’s State of the World’s Plants report, there are 391,000 vascular plants known to science – and one fifth of them are at risk of extinction.

In our latest issue, we mapped the documented uses of the 31,128 plant species which are known to benefit humans, animals or the wider environment.

This infographic was taken from issue #23 of Delayed Gratification, which is available for purchase in our online shop. Or subscribe today with promotion code ‘SOCIAL20’ and you’ll receive the issue for free.
