Press release article for the manuscript “Potential impacts of climate change on insect communities: a transplant experiment” Contact Sabine Nooten for media details A warmer climate may lead to dramatic changes in insect communities, at least at the level of species identity. At the same time, these insect communities may remain relatively unchanged at a Read More…
