the Insects are creatures with the low status. It is a situation that quickly need to be changed. Before it is too late. A large portion of the world, insects are threatened by extinction. If the trend continues, the catastrophic consequences for other species, all ecosystems and for human survival. A new study shows that the eradication of insects goes eight times faster than the reduction in wild mammals, birds and reptiles. Insektmassen fall by 2.5 percent in the year, a development that points towards that most species will be gone about a hundred years. 41 per cent of the world's insect species appears to be in decline. Two-thirds of the species are already threatened with extinction, according to the study published in the forskningstidsskriftet Biological Conservation.
the Insects are important in all ecosystems. They are food for other species, pollinate the majority of plants and keeps the soil healthy and alive. We can't survive without them. A selection of the world when cultivating crops is totally dependent on insects. It has become more visible as the decline in bees and bumblebees frames the world's fruit production. Nevertheless, there is far more at stake. In countries as diverse as Germany and Costa Rica report on the collapse of the insektbestanden.
There are no speedy solutions, or new and smart technology that can solve these problems. The researchers point out that several factors are behind the fall in insektmassen. Industrilandbruk with high use of pesticides is one of them. Such agriculture often requires landscape where skadeinsekter and other plants to be fought or eradicated. Nature's natural diversity of plants and animals decimated to a level where most lifeforms are affected. The development started in the early 1900's, took speed in the 50s and 60s and have reached alarming proportions the twenty last years.the Insects disappear in the insane pace:- A catastrophic collapse of the
rapid climate change is another factor. Many insect species is sensitive to small klimasvingninger. Add to urbanisation and population growth, and you have a complex issue in which many interests put obstacles in the way for long-term solutions.
the Polar bear has become a symbol and a scale of climate change and rising seas. Butterflies, bumblebees, ants and beetles may play a similar role. Most importantly is, nevertheless, a new policy for healthy agriculture and protection of nature and the cultural landscape. It requires great political courage and even greater will. Now we are again warned of the humlene and the sound of a sommerfuglvinge. The task that is waiting can not be postponed.
