Living with biodiversity: the butterfly dimension

Research output: Book/ReportInaugural speech


Living with biodiversity definitely is one of the main challenges for humanity in the coming century. In studying insects, with butterflies as one of the best investigated insect groups, we can learn what it takes to meet this challenge. In my farewell address, I outline the ‘butterfly dimension’ of getting engaged for biodiversity through a process of basic describing, recording and counting, which leads on to evidence-based learning-bydoing: combining monitoring, research and adaptive management.
