Two new species have been added to the global list of invertebrates after being discovered in Abu Dhabi's Al Wathba Wetland Reserve during regular seasonal trapping carried out of researchers of th

Dams impound the majority of rivers and provide important societal benefits, especially daily water releases that enable on-peak hydroelectricity generation. Such “hydropeaking” is common worldwide, but its downstream impacts remain unclear. We evaluated the response of aquatic insects, a cornerstone of river food webs, to hydropeaking using a life history–hydrodynamic model.

The biggest survey to date of nature along Britain’s coastline has uncovered a host of “wildlife firsts”.

Australia's most newly-discovered spider surfs, swims and can catch prey up to three times its own size.

Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have discovered eight new whip spider species in the Brazilian Amazon, which nearly doubles the number known to inhabit the region.

Though captivating with their bright, vivid metallic bodies, cuckoo wasps are fairly difficult to classify due to similarities among species, and they are known for curious habits that are the basi

The government should launch a field trial of genetically modified insects, according to a House of Lords report.

Spatial synchrony, the tendency of distant populations to fluctuate similarly, is a major concern in ecology. Except in special circumstances, researchers historically had difficulty identifying drivers of synchrony in field systems. Perhaps for this reason, the possibility that changes in large-scale climatic drivers may modify synchrony, thereby impacting ecosystems and human concerns, has been little examined. Here, we use wavelets to determine environmental drivers of phenological synchrony across Britain for 20 aphid species, most major crop pests.

A tiny beetle could wipe out Britain’s ash trees much faster than the established ash dieback disease which is expected to eventually kill millions of the trees, according to the government’s leadi
