The greatest challenges we currently face as a society are the twin, interconnected threats of climate change and biodiversity loss. They will jeopardise our future if we go about business as usual. This chapter focuses on more sustainable constructi... Read More about Building a Sustainable Dental Practice.

Safeguarding Imperiled Biodiversity and Evolutionary Processes in the Wallacea Center of Endemism (2022)
Journal Article
Struebig, M. J., Aninta, S. G., Beger, M., Bani, A., Barus, H., Brace, S., …Supriatna, J. (2022). Safeguarding Imperiled Biodiversity and Evolutionary Processes in the Wallacea Center of Endemism. Bioscience, 72(11), 1118-1130. https://doi.org/10.1093/biosci/biac085

Wallacea—the meeting point between the Asian and Australian fauna—is one of the world's largest centers of endemism. Twenty-three million years of complex geological history have given rise to a living laboratory for the study of evolution and biodiv...

Stable pollination service in a generalist High Arctic community despite the warming climate (2022)
Journal Article
Cirtwill, A., Kaartinen, R., Rasmussen, C., Redr, D., Wirta, H., Olesen, J., …Roslin, T. (in press). Stable pollination service in a generalist High Arctic community despite the warming climate. Ecological monographs, https://doi.org/10.1002/ecm.1551

Insects provide key pollination services in most terrestrial biomes, but this service depends on a multi-step interaction between insect and plant. An insect needs to visit a flower, receive pollen from the anthers, move to another conspecific flower...

Pollinator-flower interactions in gardens during the covid 19 pandemic lockdown of 2020 (2022)
Journal Article
Ollerton, J., Trunschke, J., Havens, K., Landaverde-González, P., Keller, A., Gilpin, A., …Arnold, S. (2022). Pollinator-flower interactions in gardens during the covid 19 pandemic lockdown of 2020. Journal of Pollination Ecology, 31(9), 87-96. https://doi.org/10.26786/1920-7603%282022%29695

During the main COVID-19 global pandemic lockdown period of 2020 an impromptu set of pollination ecologists came together via social media and personal contacts to carry out standardised surveys of the flower visits and plants in gardens. The surveys... Read More about Pollinator-flower interactions in gardens during the covid 19 pandemic lockdown of 2020.

Essential spawning grounds of Scottish herring: current knowledge and future challenges (2022)
Journal Article
Frost, M., & Diele, K. (2022). Essential spawning grounds of Scottish herring: current knowledge and future challenges. Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries, 32, 721-744. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11160-022-09703-0

Scotland once had the largest herring fishery globally, generating local income, identity, and societal change. Following historic stock collapse, in spring 2018/2019 large herring shoals were observed on the west coast for the first time in decades,...

Insect Pollination and Sustainable Agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa (2020)
Journal Article
Tolera, K., & Ballantyne, G. (2021). Insect Pollination and Sustainable Agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa. Journal of Pollination Ecology, 27(2), 36-46

We are currently seeing an expansion of pollinator-dependent crops in many parts of the world, but also growing evidence for pollinator population declines and loss of pollinator habitat. Climate change and population growth will place additional dem... Read More about Insect Pollination and Sustainable Agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa.
