Wings of change

14 July, 2015 @ 6:00 pm

Free

Long-term insect surveillance initiatives, such as the Rothamsted Insect Survey and the UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme, allow ongoing assessments of the conservation status of large numbers of insect species against a background of increasing environmental change.  In addition, surveillance initiatives focused on aphids, biting-midges and mosquitoes are essential to our understanding and management of potential agricultural pests and human and animal health threats. This meeting will highlight the key findings from long-term insect surveys, including a 50-year monitoring project for British moths and butterflies, range expansion of biting midges and the disease-risk implications of mosquitoes ‘on the move’.
