Now in Stock - Micro Moth Vernacular Names: A Nomenclatural Checklist of British Microlepidoptera
Like them or loathe them, the smaller moths have common names too. First listed in Victorian publications, revised in the 1940s and again in the 2000s, this latest update by Jim Wheeler lists the vernacular names of 1633 resident, migrant and adventive micro moths of Great Britain and Ireland.
Also on Micro-moths:

The 6W 12V Portable Heath Moth Trap is lightweight and dismantles flat for easy transport. This trap includes bulb and electrics but no power source and features a rainshield for protection from unpredicable weather. 

This mains-powered 20W Heath Moth Trap is made from lightweight durable polypropylene and can be packed flat so that it fits into a daysack. It is easy to assemble and very portable so is great for holidays or garden trapping.
Carnivorous Plants: Physiology, Ecology, and Evolution
Every aspect of carnivorous plant physiology, biochemistry, genomics, ecology, and evolution is examined in this book, which culminates in a description of the serious threats they now face from over-collection, poaching, habitat loss, and climate change.
Political instability is a strong indicator of widespread species loss
A study looking at three decades of global data has found that ineffective national governance is a better predictor of species loss than climate change or human population growth.

Effects of coral reef loss on fisheries productivity
Long-term effects of coral reef degradation on local fisheries are likely to be disastrous, according to a recent study led by the University of Queensland.
