Insect conservation biology: What can we learn from ornithology and birding?

David Pearson, Fabio Cassola

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In a search for patterns within the history of scientific studies, historians have analysed several fields from physics (Nye 1996), astronomy, and computer software (Leadbeater and Miller 2004) to biology (Killingsworth and Palmer 1992; Pearson and Cassola 2007). Are there steps common to all scientific endeavour? What recognisable patterns of change take place and what are the significant factors causing the changes? How can they best be compared?
