”Unless we change the ways we produce food will be insects as a whole to continue to extinction within decades. The repercussions it will have on the planet's ecosystems are, to say the least disastrous,” the researchers write in the report that is based on more than 70 studies.
40 percent of the world's insects are in decline and one third are threatened with extinction. It was previously known that insektskollapser been noted in countries such as Puerto Rico and Germany, but according to the new study, the risk is for the same development global.
the number of insects decreased by 2.5 per cent annually in the last 25 to 30 years, and that if it continues will the total amount will be halved in 50 years and be completely lost about 100. Utrotningshastigheten is reported to be eight times faster than mammals, birds or reptiles.
the Report agrees with the earlier warnings that the current trend points to a historic sixth massutplåning of life on earth – the first caused by humans and faster than anyone else, including the most recent 65 million years ago when the dinosaurs disappeared. Insects account for 70 percent of the planet's living species and plays a crucial role for a big part of other fauna and flora.
