Well if you wish to spoil your day, you just have to read the Red Data Book ..... followed by the small article listed by the MWP.
It seems that since 1989, at least 6 more species have become extinct - mostly dune species as one can expect. Of worthy I could figure out that the only species of horestail of our islands - Equisetum ramosissimum has been listed as vulnerable (in 1989 it was not even listed....)
What a long way to go...........
