Silent Labours of our Tiny Neighbours - Ecosystem Services Provided by Insects

Part of: Insect and Nature Series

Course description

Humans are reliant on the environment for our well-being, but have you thought about how insects are vital for ecosystem health? Without pollinators we would be missing not only foodplants for ourselves, but of equal importance, gone would be the landscape plants that provide food and shelter for fish, birds and other mammals. From critical processes such as pollination, decomposition and regulating pests, insects are key for the delivery of many underappreciated services.  Further, insects provide us with food, fibre, and many cultural benefits. In this course we will talk about the myriad ways that insects are important to us, discuss the recent “insect apocalypse” research and share practical suggestions to support the work of our tiny neighbours.
