Flying Insects Dying at Faster Rates, According to Michael Moore

Michael Moore, Assistant Professor of Integrative Biology, led a study analyzing data on 800 species of insects around the world and discovered that flying insects (many of them pollinators) are migrating at slower rates than their non-flying counterparts and appear to be dying at faster rates. That includes many insect species located in Colorado, said Moore, whose research was published in Nature Climate Change.
