For these we recommend, respectively, increased monitoring of the whole habitat and of adult Odonata. In addition to these comparative changes of insects, we have recently shown that butterflies have experienced greater declines than plants and birds in the UK (Thomas et al 2004). This represents regional extinctions at a scale that is 2-3 orders of magnitude greater than that of a typical butterfly meta-population. Hence butterflies (and by implication other insects) can be considered particularly sensitive bio-indicators of environmental change compared to plants and vertebrates.
