United States of America
As human habitation, and illumination, of freshwater coastlines worldwide continues to grow, the importance of understanding the implications of these changes for freshwater ecosystems grows with it, especially here in Michigan. This program will discuss some of the research being done on the impacts of light pollution on insects that play a crucial role in freshwater food webs and why we should be concerned.
