Switzerland endangering plant species – U of Bern research

Share this

A recent study by U of Bern researchers has identified the major causes of increasing endangerment of plant species in the country.

Anne Kempel, author of the study that involved 420 botanists and worked together with the Swiss data and information center Info Flor, said that micropollutants, fertilizer pollution, the loss of natural flow dynamics due to river straightening, the use of rivers as a source of electricity, and the draining of bog areas are all troublesome for these plants.
