Abstract

Life on earth consists of a wondrous array of organisms, from bacteria and viruses, to redwoods and whales. But it’s the invertebrates - those animals without a backbone - that have diversified most notably. Wilson (1987) called them the ‘little things that run the world’ and made a call to arms to bring invertebrate conservation to the forefront of our minds.
