Due to climate change, dragonflies move to the north of the planet

As the temperature rises, dragonflies move north - this was noticed by scientists from the UK and

Ireland. Experts from the British Dragonfly Society say this is an indicator of the effects of climate change.

They are also concerned about the loss of insect populations.due to factors such as pollution and habitat changes. Nature conservation officer Eleanor Colver noted that although their data can determine where dragonflies are found, they cannot accurately determine their number and whether their number has increased in general.

“Factors such as pesticide use(reducing the number of prey flying insects), water pollution and habitat loss continue to threaten the health of dragonfly populations within existing ranges, Colver said.

The species that have expanded their range include dozens ofdragonflies, but some of them living in the highlands and the north are retreating or disappearing. Scientists attribute this to the loss of peat bogs and severe droughts.

“Increasing the numbers of many species we canexplained by a combination of climate warming and an increase or improvement in wetland habitats. This is an increase in the number of ponds, lakes, gravel pits and reservoirs in recent decades, - said Dave Smallshire, co-editor of the report. "But that doesn't mean the dragonflies are okay."

“Our view is that global climate change in the case of the UK and Ireland is likely to have influenced many of these changes,” he added.
