Dave Goulson – Silent Earth – Averting the Insect Apocalypse

Insects are essential for life as we know it. As their numbers decline at a shocking rate, our world will slowly grind to a halt. Both revealing and alarming Silent Earth is a rousing manifesto for a greener planet. It is a call to arms for change – agriculture, government policy, industry and ourselves. Goulson’s previous book Gardening for Bumblebees shows how to provide a refuge for a pollinator friendly haven.

An illustrated talk

Dave Goulson is a Professor of Biology at the University of Sussex and has published more than 300 scientific articles on the ecology and conservation of bumblebees and other insects. His books include: The Garden Jungle and A Sting in the Tale which was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson prize and has been translated into fifteen languages. His magnus opus SILENT EARTH is both a heartfelt love letter to the insect world that had captivated him since childhood as well as an appeal to everyone to combat the catastrophic decline in the insects.
