The National Ecological Observation Network (NEON) spotlights the analysis of climate and habitat effects on North American ground beetles:
Are ground beetle populations decreasing? It depends on where you look and what species you look at. A recent paper in Global Ecology and Biology, Habitat–trait interactions that control response to climate change: North American ground beetles, explores the connections between climate change, habitat types, and ground beetle traits. The study could help researchers model which ground beetle species may be at risk and the habitats needing protection to preserve them.
