The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation is an international nonprofit organization that protects the natural world through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitats. As a science-based organization, we both conduct our own research and rely upon the most up-to-date information to guide our conservation work. Freshwater ecosystems worldwide have been progressively deteriorated during the past decades due to an increasing human pressure that has lead to a decrease in aquatic biodiversity. Among the human activities of high impact on freshwater ecosystems is the land-use change, principally from native forests to agriculture. To evaluate the impacts of human activities on water Cited by: 6.

Global in scope, the book deals with animals in terrestrial, marine, and freshwater communities. Also included are chapters on biodiversity, rationale and priorities for invertebrate.
LIFE NATURE LIFE AND INVERTEBRATE CONSERVATION 1 I nvertebrates are a cornerstone of our ecosystems, providing vital services such as pollination and also acting as important environmental indicators (for instance of water quality in riv-ers, a function of freshwater pearl mussels).

The book deals with problems of, and approaches to, invertebrate conservation in highly managed agricultural ecosystems, and examines how biodiversity may be promoted without compromising agricultural production.
It draws attention to the importance of invertebrates in agricultural systems and their role in ecosystem functions. Demonstrating how the two disparate fields may interact for greater collective benefit, it draws on recent literature to reveal how invertebrate conservation in highly altered landscapes may be promoted and y, Biodiversity and Conservation: Invertebrate Conservation and Agricultural Ecosystems (Hardcover)Brand: T R New.

Invertebrates are the major energy conduits and agents of nutrient and material recycling in marine, freshwater, and terrestrial ecosystems throughout the world, and the sustainability of the earth's life-support systems depends on their well-being.
Despite this, conservation managers and practitioners still know very little about invertebrate biology, or how to study and survey invertebrates.Invertebrate conservation is hard to justify when many people see each insect as a potential pest or each spider as a potential health threat (Martín-López et al., ).
With a few exceptions (e.g. bees, butterflies), the public is not aware of invertebrate roles in ecosystems and the conservation threats many species are by: Invertebrates are, therefore, not the first animals that come to mind.
But, although it may not seem so, invertebrates are of great ecological importance and play a significant role in human society, something that we will try to explain in this article.
Invertebrates have an extraordinary ecological, economic and social significance.
