Part love letter to the insect world, part elegy, part rousing manifesto for a greener planet, Dave Goulson's latest book, Silent Earth: Averting the Insect Apocalypse, is a call to arms for profound change – in government policy, agriculture, industry and in our own homes and gardens. Drawing on ground-breaking research and a lifetime's study, he talks to eco-poet and environmental journalist Julian Bishop about the decline of insect populations that has taken place in recent decades, passionately arguing that we must all learn to love, respect and care for our six-legged friends.
Dave Goulson is Professor of Biology at University of Sussex, specialising in bee ecology, and co-founder of The Bumblebee Conservation Trust. He has published more than 300 scientific articles on the ecology and conservation of bumblebees and other insects. His books include the Sunday Times bestsellers The Garden Jungle and A Sting in the Tale.
