Will - I think we've lost them already. It's always about species because its easier to measure - what scares me is more the biomass, and I think that critical loss is on an altogether & much greater scale. The survival of forest insect eating birds like Nightjar and Honey Buzzard may be as much to do with the fact that forests are now the only habitat in the UK where there is virtually no use of insecticide, as much as the intrinsic value of the forest habitat.

Bill,
I agree but is anything user friendly these days? I find if you ring up the boffins at forest research at either Alice Holt or North they're more than happy to talk and point you in the right direction although it wont be long before you will only be able to talk to someone who wants your card details first. I thought the idea of such a government research body was to share information for the good of the environment. If we are to believe the Today programme we are going to loose most of our insects in the next few decades which means we will really be up**** creek, its bad enough now if you consider how many were visible on windscreens in the past. All I can say here comes the "Silent Spring" or worse (Rachel Carson,September 1962).

Thanks Will; it's not as user friendly as it was is it? And I get the distinct impression that the content has been drastically reduced. And how come some of the links there click through to the National Archive? I suspect there'll be a pay-wall on there before too long...
Bill.

I dunno if anyone's been to what was formerly www.forestry.gov.uk
recently, but it's moved. It's now in the www.gov.uk's realm. I
noticed this sometime last year and thought little of it, presuming
that all it would mean would be some of my bookmarks wouldn't work.

However I've just been looking for that list of hosts and diseases (to
post a link to a client) and it's gone and flipping-well completely
vanished!
Have I missed something or is it just the flipping Government
attempting to monetise what IMO was a valuable source of information?
That we've probably already paid for anyway.....

Or am I just being dim?

Bill.
