> Are you concerned about the rapid decline of native medicinal plants?
> If you're not, you should be. All reports indicate that the burgeoning
> herbal and dietary supplement industry has had a devastating impact on
> native plant populations. What this means is that many wild
> populations of important medicinal plants are either threatened or
> verging on extinction. Loss of habitat, overharvesting, or the
> sensitive nature of many of these plants has caused sharp declines in
> plant populations.
> While cultivated varieties of many of these plants are being used in
> many supplements, the wild, or native, plants are generally seen as
> more potent. Those looking for a quick buck don't hesitate to decimate
> entire stands of wild ginseng or goldenseal--for example--when they
> find them. With the loss of these wild populations, we also lose
> biodiversity--and perhaps the ability to produce healthy cultivated
> varieties in the future.
> If you're interested in this problem and wondering what can be done,
> check out the United Plant Savers Web site. This site is heavily
> pro-environmental, with links to organizations and news sources that
> provide coverage of a large variety of environmental issues. However,
> the main goal of the site is to provide lists of "at risk" and "to
> watch" native plants that have suffered overharvesting. You can
> subscribe to the newsletter, send an email about the plant lists, or
> simply keep up with native plant populations.
> If you like to gather plants from the wild, please check the list
> first, and then consider finding alternative sources if recommended.
