How many other species are dependent on insects for food?  This is the first I've heard of collapsing insect populations.  Seems like this would have a catastrophic ripple effect.

Sterilizing huge portions of the ecosystem for mono crops will have all kinds of unexpected consequences. Possibly mutant bugs of Enormous proportions.

That is one sh!tty chart. Maybe I'm not connecting today. The labels applied to the tan and striped shading are just a regurgitation of the articles two main points, and the shading has no apparent relation to the graph itself. Unless they meant to leave out the unbolded portion of the labels, then it makes a little more sense, but still a pretty poor vehicle for its information.

I haven't seen a water skipper for almost a decade, but I certainly may have missed them since I haven't gone looking for them or their habitats in particular. I see a slug 4-5 times a year now, 30-40 years ago we saw them 4-5 times a month. Can't remember the last banana slug I saw.

Regardless the next few decades are going to be an interesting ride.
