LONDON  A report billed as the first comprehensive look at worlds plants finds a planet slowly being ravaged by changing land use, mostly conversion of forests to agriculture to feed a growing population, and climate change.

.

The State of the Worlds Plants study is designed to provide a baseline for annual reports that will measure how many plant species are being discovered, and how many are being lost forever.

.

The positive is were still discovering lots of new plants, about 2,000 each year, new plants for food, for fuel, for drugs, said Kathy Willis, science director at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. On the negative, weve seen a huge change in land cover, mainly driven by cultural activity, with a little bit of climate change in there as well.

.

The goal, she said, is to better understand the factors driving these negative changes  and to change them to protect more plants from extinction.

.

The report by one of the worlds leading research institutions involved more than 80 scientists. Here are some of its findings:
