High-resolution melting (HRM) curve analysis as a potential tool for the identification of earthworm species and haplotypes

HRM curve analysis of COI genes has the potential to identify earthworm species and haplotypes and could complement morphological identification, especially for juvenile or damaged individuals and help reduce the costs of molecular analyses and thereby promote their application in practice.

All for One Health and One Health for All: Considerations for Successful Citizen Science Projects Conducting Vector Surveillance from Animal Hosts

A literature review of studies from the United States and Canada utilizing citizen science efforts to collect arthropods of public health and veterinary interest from animals identified common stakeholder groups, the types of surveillance that are common with each group, and the literature gaps on understudied vectors and populations.

The effects of climate and land use on British bumblebees: Findings from a decade of citizen‐science observations

1. Bumblebees are important pollinators but are suffering from population de clines due to land use intensification and climate change. In- depth knowledge of species' relationships with different

Current Trends and Issues in Research on Biodiversity Conservation and Tourism Sustainability

The rationale of this article is the need to elicit the trending themes relevant to the latest research on biodiversity conservation and tourism sustainability. Hence, the purpose of this study:

Avian Use of Dairy Farm Ponds and Landowners’ Perceptions of Their Management for Wildlife Conservation

Farm ponds are among the last remaining lentic wetland habitats in human-dominated agricultural and suburban landscapes. However, their wildlife value and farmers’ willingness to maintain them for

Meta-analysis reveals declines in terrestrial but increases in freshwater insect abundances

It is found that freshwater insect populations have increased overall, perhaps owing to clean water efforts and climate change, and patterns of variation suggest that local-scale drivers are likely responsible for many changes in population trends, providing hope for directed conservation actions.

Assessing species richness trends: Declines of bees and bumblebees in the Netherlands since 1945.

Estimating and predicting temporal trends in species richness is of general importance, but notably difficult because detection probabilities of species are imperfect and many datasets were collected

Arthropod decline in grasslands and forests is associated with landscape-level drivers

The results suggest that major drivers of arthropod decline act at larger spatial scales, and are associated with agriculture at the landscape level, which implies that policies need to address the landscape scale to mitigate the negative effects of land-use practices.

Long-term large-scale decline in relative abundances of butterfly and burnet moth species across south-western Germany

This study analyzes trends of species richness and shifts in species composition of butterflies and burnet moth species across the federal state of Baden-Württemberg in south-western Germany, covering an area of 35,750 km2 over a period from 1750 until today to indicate large-scale decline in relative abundance.

Declining abundance of beetles, moths and caddisflies in the Netherlands

The results broadly echo recent reported trends in insect biomass in Germany and elsewhere, suggesting that heavy species did not contribute disproportionately to biomass decline.
