WWF: Rare and Endangered Plants

Check out this list of rare and endangered plants.  Many of these are trees that are valued for lumber and are directly threatened by illegal logging, especially Mahogany.  These large trees provide habitat for countless animal species as well, so protecting them is critical for entire ecosystems.  However, it seems kind of small doesn't it? Unfortunately identifying endangered plants is much more difficult than endangered animals, which is why lists are quite short.
