Accounting for year effects and sampling error in temporal analyses of invertebrate population and biodiversity change: a comment on Seibold et al . 2019
Insect Conservation and Diversity
1. An accumulating number of studies are reporting severe insect declines. These studies aim to quantify temporal changes in invertebrate populations and community composition and attribute them to anthropogenic drivers. 2. Seibold et al. 2019 (Nature, 574, 671-674) analysed arthropod biomass, abundance and species richness from forest and grassland plots in a region of Germany and reported declines of up to 78% between 2008 and 2018. However, their analysis did not account for the confoundingdoi:10.1111/icad.12468 fatcat:xle4fw5r75h7lfm5h7tg4i2wte
