CABI Book Chapter

Insect conservation biology.

Book cover for Insect conservation biology.



Chapter 1 (Page no: 1)

Insect conservation in temperate biomes: issues, progress and prospects.

The interests and priorities for insect conservation in the better-documented and generally less species-rich northern temperate regions and in the more poorly understood, but more diverse biomes of southern temperate regions are described, largely focusing on experiences in the UK and Australia. Conservation threats to temperate insects (habitat change, impact of introduced species, impacts of biological control agents on nontarget species, extinction cascades, and insidious threats) are briefly discussed.
