CABI Book Chapter

Insect conservation biology.

Book cover for Insect conservation biology.



Chapter 9 (Page no: 203)

Monitoring biodiversity: measuring long-term changes in insect abundance.

The goals of long-term monitoring of biodiversity (i.e. repeated sampling of populations for detecting patterns in the variation of abundance over time), and the criteria for data required in long-term monitoring are discussed. Sources of long-term data sets (expert opinion, inventories, long-term point samples, and direct population monitoring) of insect abundance that can be used for biodiversity monitoring are presented.
