WOW thanks! Impressive. This should allow me to get some really good bug
If we want to study global climate change as a function of the impact on
wildlife, I would think insects would be a better indicator than birds or
mammals. Reasoning: with the bigger beasts there aren't enough of them, and
there aren't enough different kinds. In any given area, there are usually
only a few mammal species and a perhaps a couple dozen bird species. One
can be out all day and never even see a wild mammal. But there are hundreds
of different kinds of bugs. Even a small climate change should tilt the
playing field in favor of one over another competing species.
