... Arid zone landscapes are characterised by a high spatial and temporal variability, particularly seasonal variability, observable on a range of scales. This variability is an important factor influencing the distribution and dynamics of wildlife populations in the arid zone. However, progress...

... in the insect world, and this too adds a further facet to their conservation. Additionally, insect populations are often highly dynamic, with great vagility and population variability. Conservation of this complexity can only be done at the level of the landscape, so as to incorporate all the interactions...

Recent advances in technology over the last 10–20 years means that long-term studies of bats are viable and can be cost-effective. I...
