Published on October 18, 2017 at 02:45PM: The Guardian: But the newly revealed scale of the losses to all insects has prompted warnings that the world is “on course for ecological Armageddon,” with profound impacts on human society………The new data was gathered in nature reserves across Germany but has implications for all landscapes dominated by agriculture, the researchers said……………The cause of the huge decline is as yet unclear, although the destruction of wild areas and widespread use of pesticides are the most likely factors and climate change may play a role……..The scientists were able to rule out weather and changes to landscape in the reserves as causes, but data on pesticide levels has not been collected………………….The research, published in the journal Plos One, is based on the work of dozens of amateur entomologists across Germany who began using strictly standardized ways of collecting insects in 1989 #AceNewsDesk reports are provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News
