Hoekman, D., LeVan, K. E., Gibson, C., Ball, G. E., Browne, R. A., Davidson, R. L., … Work, T. (2017). Design for ground beetle abundance and diversity sampling within the National Ecological Observatory Network. Ecosphere, 8(4). doi:10.1002/ecs2.1744 https://doi.org/10.1002/ecs2.1744

The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) will monitor ground beetle populations across a network of broadly distributed sites because beetles are prevalent in food webs, are sensitive to abiotic factors, and have an established role as indicator species of habitat and climatic shifts. We d…

Grünig, M., Calanca, P., Mazzi, D., & Pellissier, L. (2020). Inflection point in climatic suitability of insect pest species in Europe suggests non‐linear responses to climate change. Global Change Biology. doi:10.1111/gcb.15313 https://doi.org/10.1111/gcb.15313

Climate change and globalization affect the suitable conditions for agricultural crops and insect pests, threatening future food security. It remains unknown whether shifts in species’ climatic suitability will be linear or rather non‐linear, with crop exposure to pests suddenly increasing when a cr…
