Are there more species of plants or animals on the endangered species list?

    The 2006 IUCN Red List included 16,118 species, 7,725 were animals, 8,390 were plants. (However, some known threatened plants were not included on that list.)

    Percentage-wise among types, amphibians and mammals are the most threatened, moreso than plants. That is to say, any given amphibian or mammal species is more likely to be threatened than a plant or any other animal.

    Consider though, as the articles linked below, how many undiscovered animals and plants are believed to exist. It’s certain that some plants and animals will go extinct before we even find them.
