A new study in the journal Science by researchers from Duke and North Carolina State University shows that humans are not protecting the right parts of the world if our goal is to conserve biological diversity. The researchers found that “67% of plant species live entirely within regions that comprise 17% of the land surface.”
via Protecting just 17% of Earth’s land would save 67% of plant species. Can we do it before it’s too late?
