Insektensterben: Zahl der Insekten in Deutschland sinkt deutlich - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Sorry it's all in German, but the gist of it is that they Scientists set up these net-like or tent-like things to trap the insects in a nr of nature reserves, just to get a head-count. Results are a bit shocking.
This would tally with the decline in the bee population.
Pie have thread on that too!
I think there's also a decline in the nr of birds. Well if it's all about the birds and the bees, homo sapiens must be somewhere down the line.
Well something else to make you sit up straight and worry. Sorry Insectology is just humbug to me. And I don't know much about bees except that they are needed to polinate the fruit and veggies.
Why start a thread on it? Well I think it's important for pie readers to be aware of what's going on in the world out there that's not the world of men.
