The preservation of biodiversity is an urgent necessity to ensure the life on Earth and how we know it. The preservation of the Valencian flora can’t be foreign to this necessity.

But, 21st Century has changed the citizenship’s participation that has affected to its involvement in the plants preservation too. The denominated citizen science has played a par in the last decades to increase the knowledge about which we can analyse the state of threat of plant species.
