Insect Diversity Declines and Conservation in Australia by Tim R. New Book PDF Summary

Declines and losses of insects throughout the world have wide ramifications for the sustainability of terrestrial and inland water ecosystems, and for humanity. Those changes are complex and confusing to quantify and evaluate as bases for assessing needs and priorities for conservation. Australias insect fauna is taxonomically and ecologically diverse, highly endemic (and, so, unique) and also very imperfectly known, so that establishing numerical and distributional templates for insect diversity against which to measure changes must generally rely on very incomplete information but aided by awareness of a number of clearly threatened species and evidence that profound changes to natural habitats from human activities continue. This book explores the major themes and problems in facilitating and expanding insect conservation interest and practice in Australia, through discussing how diversity may be evaluated, how changes might occur and the global significance of Australias insects, as prelude to outlining practical conservation measures that must be pursued with incomplete documentation and understanding of the fauna. Insect conservation studies and examples (with extensive references given) from many parts of the world are discussed to display how progress may be increased in Australia. Themes such as focus on particular taxa or sites, habitat restoration and protected areas, threat recognition and alleviation, education and citizen science, attention to wider landscape/ecosystem protection, and honing conservation policy to increase attention to insects, are all integral components of developing measures to protect Australias insect heritage. They are discussed in the context of increasing awareness of insect diversity and understanding the richness and vulnerability of numerous native taxa and their restricted environments.

Australia s Biodiversity and Climate Change

"Australia's unique biodiversity is under threat from a rapidly changing climate. The effects of climate change are already discernible at all levels of biodiversity - genes, species, communities and ecosystems. Many of Australia's most valued and iconic natural areas - the Great Barrier Reef, south-western Australia, the Kakadu wetlands and

Insect Conservation and Australia   s Grasslands

Australia’s varied grasslands have suffered massive losses and changes since European settlement, and those changes continue under increasingly intensive human pressures for development and agricultural production. The values of native grasslands for conservation of endemic native biodiversity, both flora and fauna, have led to strong interests in the protection

Global Decline of Insects

Insects are a group of animals that contribute significantly to the proper functioning of different ecosystems on the planet. They provide services such as pollinating crops, recycling nutrients and controlling pests. Many scientific publications and reports have studied the current global decline of insects. This decline can severely affect other
