Three-quarters of flying insects in nature reserves across Germany have vanished in 25 years, with serious implications for all life on Earth. The recent study by the group of Hans de Kroon and Caspar Hallman revealed the scale of the losses to all insects and prompted warnings that the world is “on course for ecological Armageddon”, with profound impacts on human society. In this first triple-E-lecture both Hans and Caspar will come to discuss their recent discoveries - and the way forward.

Prof. Hans de Kroon and Caspar Hallman MSc are both from the Radboud University Nijmegen and collaborate in a program on the resilience of plant and bird communities in a dramatically changing European landscape.
