The number of known bee species across the world has declined by 25% since the 1990s, a new study shows. Researchers at the National University of Comahue in Argentina found that between 2006 and 2015, a quarter fewer species were recorded in comparison to records from before 1990. They based their findings on records from …
In a study of local rivers, experts at the University of Nottingham have discovered more invertebrates – animals without a backbone, such as insects and…
An international team quantified a dramatic biodiversity collapse of up to 95 per cent of native species in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Entomologists’ message is straightforward: We can’t live without insects. They’re in trouble. And there’s something all of us can do to help.
The information will ensure Network Rail workers and contractors are aware of the possible presence of rare species when carrying out vegetation
In a study of local rivers, experts at the University of Nottingham in the UK have discovered more invertebrates – animals without a backbone, such as insects and snails – living on litter than on rocks.
Kolhapur: A biodiversity study carried out for over a year has cited the presence of 123 species of vertebrates, including 90 species of birds, 13 spe.
Threats to endemic flora in the Western Ghats will be assessed by experts comprising the Western Ghats Plant Specialist Group (WGPSG). Members of the WGPSG of the Species Survival Commission of the In

Florida homeowners enjoy their gardens and the creatures that live side-by-side with people. Humans cannot survive without the natural environment and the plants and animals that share this planet. Bees,
Help is on the way for endangered plants and animals in Halton Region.
Biodiversity’s ongoing global decline has prompted policies to protect and restore habitats to minimize animal and plant extinctions. However, biodiversity forecasts used to inform these policies are usually based on assumptions of a simple theoretical model describing how the number of species changes with the amount of habitat. A new study shows that the application of this theoretical model underestimates how many species go locally extinct when habitats are lost.
Life above ground depends on the soil and its countless inhabitants. Yet, global strategies to protect biodiversity have so far paid little attention to this habitat. Researchers call for greater consideration of soils in international biodiversity strategies, far beyond agriculture. The researchers explain their plan for systematic recording to enable comprehensive policy advisory.
