Mild winters and dry summers, climatic hazards have a strong impact on honey bee colonies and wild pollinators. The situation is likely to become more complicated from year to year. To help pollinators, several courses of action are possible.
In the course of 2021, 3 million people benefited from biomonitoring of their environment through bees. From plant diversity to pollutant concentrations, thousands of analyses have been carried out with surprising results!
A biodiversity audit makes it possible to observe the plant and animal kingdom of a site. The objective is to identify the state of conservation of the natural environment, to define the strengths and weaknesses of a site and to identify the threats to which the natural habitats are subject in order to be able to take appropriate action for biodiversity.
Biodiversity is in massive decline, mainly due to increasing anthropogenic pressure on ecosystems. An inventory of living organisms is urgently needed to ensure that measures to preserve biodiversity are effective. The most promising technique at the beginning of the 21st century goes beyond the visible spectrum, through the laboratory.
More than half of global GDP depends on nature and its ecosystem services. However, unprecedented biodiversity loss is putting this global value at risk. Given the enormity of the challenge, investors have a role to play.
Invasive species are the third most important cause of biodiversity decline worldwide. According to the IUCN, they are responsible for half of all known extinctions and pose a threat to almost a third of rare terrestrial species. By identifying invasive species and how they develop, appropriate management can be put in place.
