‘Beetles in Time and Space’: Beetle community ecology informing landscape conservation and design

Swollen-thighed beetle (Oedemera nobilis)
We know that invertebrates are important indicators of environmental change; however, the current taxonomic scope of landscape research remains fairly small and the response of various taxa to landscape factors is heterogeneous. Chris Foster provides an overview of his research to date which aims to provide useful new evidence to inform landscape planning and design for invertebrates.
