In a way, it is easier to worry about wolves, sea turtles, and White divisions are suffering from feeling emotional to extrusion decisions.
Insect loss is a direct threat – which could trigger the collapse of Earth's ecosystems, "warnings of a new study were warned.
The research looked, the first global review of its kind, of 73 historical reports on the reduction of insects around the world and found that the total mass of all insects on the planets decreased by 2.5% per annum.
If this trend continues unchanged, there may be no no insects in the world between 2119.
"In ten years you will have a quarter, in the age of 50 but only half left and in 1
is a major problem, since food sources are food sources for birds, fish and mammals. There is no significant role in mammals. Ollinators such as bees and butterflies in fruit, vegetable and nut production.
Insects are expired 8 times faster than mammals, birds and reptiles
Sánchez-Bayo and his composers focused on insect analysis in European and North American countries. 41% of insect species have been estimated to decline, 31% are threatened (in accordance with the criteria set by the International Union for Nature Conservation), with 10% out of office locally.
The rate of discrimination is eight times faster than the speed observed on leakage for mammals, birds and reptiles.
The study suggests that beekeep species in the UK, Denmark and North America have a huge hit – bees, bees, beans and wildlife species are all overwhelming. In the United States, honey colonies dropped from 6 million in 1947 to 2.5 million but six decades later.
Slices and butterflies also occur throughout Europe and the United States. Between 2000 and 2009 alone, the UK lost 58% of butterfly species on farmland.
Butterflies, bugs, and beetles look like dead.
Looking at all populations of animals across the planet (not only insects), according to the 2017 study, the Earth appears to have a "biological annihilation" process. This analysis considers that "there are as much as 50% of the number of animals that share the Earth during us".
The "sixth distinction" is sometimes the fall of this decline in global biodiversity, since the sixth time in the history of life on Earth that the slope of the planet has a huge fall.
In the past, caused by an age of mass or mass asteroid collisions. However, this huge deficit is driven by human activities – such as deforestation, mining, and carbon dioxide emissions that contribute to global warming.
"As there are two thirds of all Earth-wide species, the above trends confirm that the sixth major event of extinguishing has a significant impact on the lives of our planet," the authors wrote .

& # 39; Disastrous consequences for … living humanity & # 39;
The study stresses that insects "are essential to the proper functioning of all ecosystems" as food sources, top pollinators, pest controllers , and recyclable nutrients in the soil.
"If insect species losses can not be stopped, there will be catastrophic consequences of planet ecosystems and the survival of humanity," says Sánchez-Bayo don Chaomhnóir.
Therefore the population of insects has decreased significantly due to food, wood and fiber production that relies on humanity survival, according to Timothy Schowalter, professor of science at Louisiana State University.
"The pollinator reduces 35% of our global food supply, which is why European countries are mandating the protection and restoration of pollen habitats," he said in Business.
Schowalter said insects were also critical food resources for many birds, fish and other vertebrates, which would be deterred from their source of food.
"Insects are often malignant, or at least their significant contributions to ecosystem productivity and the delivery of unforeseen ecosystem services," Schowalter said. "Shortly, if insects and other arthropods are reduced, our survival would be a threat."
This is not the first time scientists have asked to raise insect populations.
In 2017, a study showed that 75% of flight insects from Germany disappeared from the 1990s. Another recent study showed that there is a complete biomass of arthropods – creatures such as insects, spiders, and lobsters that have joint legs but no backbone – in Líora Ríce after taking a nose loop from the 1970s.
Pesticides and fertilizers, as well as heavy land use for farming, are the main driver of this decline.
"In general, most organs, from insects and bats, have a negative impact on the systematic, widespread and frequent use of excessive pesticides in agricultural and pasture land with 60 last year, "wrote the authors of the new study.
They said: "The conclusion is clear: if we do not change our ways of producing food, insects as a whole will go down the corridor of the disappearance in a couple of years."
Sánchez-Bayo told the Guardian that he believes that insecticides such as neonicotinoids and fipronyl are very harmful.
"They stirpe the soil, killing all the grubs," he said.
Climate change also has a limited role in climate change in insect deaths, although it is not the main factor.
"To date, the reduction in land use changes, particularly agricultural density, forest fragmentation and urban development, has been a reduction in temperature change," Schowalter said.
