Pollination by nocturnal Lepidoptera, and the effects of light pollution: a review
Callum J. Macgregor, Michael J. O. Pocock, Richard Fox and Darren M. Evans

In this review by Macgregor et al., we are presented with evidence for how artificial lighting at night hampers the biology and pollination services of nocturnal Lepidoptera. These effects may help explain the sharp and alarming decline of moth populations across the world. By recommending the use of ecological network approaches to inform additional empirical work, the authors have brought to the forefront the need to consider this apparently “innocuous” anthropogenic factor as a significant issue to be addressed. Keep your porch light off!

In the News - Ten Year Invasion of the Harlequin Ladybird

The harlequin ladybird, Harmonia axyridis was first recorded in Britain in 2004. The UK Ladybird Survey, a citizen science initiative involving online recording, was launched in 2005 to encourage people across Britain to track the spread of H. axyridis. Tens of thousands of people have provided records of H. axyridis and other species of ladybirds which provides an important dataset for large-scale and long-term research. This Invited Review makes use of the UK Ladybird Survey dataset to review the last ten years of invasion by the harlequin ladybird.
