Aims to impart awareness on the current status and threats to Philippine Biodiversity as well as current efforts to contribute to Conservation of Biodiversity in the country through coleopterological research and science education
Global biodiversity decline is continuing largely unabated. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species (hereafter, Red List) provides us with the gold standard for assessments, but taxonomic coverage, especially for invertebrates and fungi, remains very low. Many players contribute to the Red List knowl...
