GLobal Insect Threat-Response Synthesis (GLiTRS):
A comprehensive and predictive assessment of the pattern and consequences of insect decline.
GLiTRS will build a global threat-response model, integrating many lines of evidence from macroecology, meta-analysis and structured expert-elicitation. We will quantify how insect biodiversity changes in response to anthropogenic pressures, how the response varies in space, by functional traits and according to the biodiversity metric used, as well as how these changes affect ecosystems.
GLiTRS Open Data Call:
Join GLiTRS as a data partner! We are seeking partners with long-term time-series data on insect populations and communities.
"There are growing concerns that insect biodiversity has declined globally. However, information about species trends is fragmented." - Dr Nick Isaac
