To limit our impact on the planet, one solution could be to replace meat with insects. Children could set an example.
Researchers explore what happens when ants can’t properly use smell to detect friend from foe.
Bees and other pollinators are key to food production, but they’re hard to keep an eye on. Now, AI software is helping track these essential farm workers.
New research from China shows how the loss of insects is destabilising food webs.
Tinkering around the margins of English farms won’t benefit biodiversity, research suggests.
From insects to birds to bats to frogs, these little loudmouths have found ingenious ways to deliver their messages at high volume.
