Entomologists Mull The Grim News About Insects
Insects outweight humans on the Earth. So when the large numbers of insects become somewhat smaller numbers, there is cause for concern.
A long-term review of scientific research shows insects going instinct at an alarming rate; up to 40 percent of all species could be at risk.
Entomologists can give us some insight into causes and effects; Alan Journet of Southern Oregon Climate Action Now is retired, but paying plenty of attention. So is Lynn Kimsey at the University of California-Davis, as well as Kristina Lefever at the Pollinator Project Rogue Valley.They join us for an overview of insect extinction and population trends.
