Special Issue Information
Insect biodiversity loss and its cascading consequences have global implications. In 2019, studies found that 40% of insects are declining and a third are endangered. Studies that monitor the implications of habitat destruction and restoration, resource exploitation, natural resources management, land use conversion, and agricultural impacts and their impacts on insect biodiversity, community structure, population dynamics, ecology, and behavior are of high scientific value both for their ability to make inferences about causes of biodiversity decline and for their documentation of current conditions and trends. This Special Issue will address insect decline; anthropogenic, biological and physiographic factors influencing patterns in insect diversity; and efforts to restore, improve, or monitor critically endangered insect populations. I look forward to your submissions.
