Climate Change and Arthropods: Pollinators, Herbivores, and Others
15.08.2012

By Sandra L. Brantley and Paulette L. Ford

The ecological roles of arthropods are important, even critical, and should be included when monitoring and predicting effects of global warming. Although knowledge of many arthropod species is lacking (Cane and Tepedino 2001), some groups have been studied in many areas and for long periods, such as butterflies, grasshoppers, some bees, and some ants. While these groups do not represent all arthropods, data about them give us a place to start in understanding their responses to climate change.
