1. Biodiversity and Conservation

– effects of alien, invasive species on arthropods

– arthropod species richnesses and diversity in local national parks

– arthropod information for researchers and the public (3 online databases)

slide14

Why Arthropods (in a nutshell) ?

(“The little things that

run the world,” E. O. Wilson)

Healthy Arthropods 

Healthy Earth 

Healthy Humans!

slide15
