SAVING THE WORLD: BIG DATA AND INSECTS
A Royal Entomological Society meeting on “e-Ecology”
Insects are a critical part of the natural world, responsible for one third of our food, almost one fifth of human deaths, and the foundations of all ecosystems on land. But our planet is sick, from climate change, biodiversity loss, and emergent viruses. As Sir David Attenborough intimated in his recent documentary, all are caused by negative interactions between an expanding human population and the remainder of the natural world.
