In this audiobook the ecologist Sverdrup-Thygeson cautions listeners about the serious effects of three major issues that are impacting the world's insect population: land use, pesticides, and climate change. All have contributed to the decrease in the number of bugs. Listeners with an aversion to these creatures would say that's a good thing--but it is not. The decrease will bring about dramatic and even catastrophic changes to the earth's ecosystems. Narrator Kristin Milward keeps listeners engaged by capturing the bits of humor sprinkled throughout this work and changing tone and rhythm for the serious aspects of the topics discussed. Listeners will think twice before eliminating spiders, ants, and mosquitoes in their backyards because, yes, they make important contributions, too.
