About

Biodiversity refers to the incredible variety of life forms on Earth, from microorganisms to plants, animals, and ecosystems. This intricate web of life plays a crucial role in maintaining the balance of our planet's ecosystems, providing essential ecosystem services and contributing to human well-being. Biodiversity encompasses not only the richness of species but also the genetic diversity within them and the intricate interactions that shape ecosystems.

Biodiversity scientists explore the distribution, abundance, and interactions of species in various habitats. They study the factors influencing biodiversity, the ecological roles of different species, and the impacts of human activities on natural systems. Understanding biodiversity is key to conservation efforts, sustainable resource management, and mitigating the effects of climate change. Biodiversity is a source of inspiration and insight into the wonders of life's diverse forms.

The Comprehensive Regeneration Approach as a Framework for Sustainable Development and Biodiversity
by Stephen J Browne

Several national and international frameworks have been developed to halt and reverse biodiversity loss by 2030 and help address the ongoing climate and biodiversity crises. These frameworks provide the targets against which locally applicable action plans can be created. The Royal Commission for AlUla and the IUCN hav...e developed Comprehensive Regeneration as the framework of nature-positive initiatives and as a model for the responsible development of AlUla County in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Into the Deep: Diving Record for the Dice Snake Natrix tessellata (Laurenti, 1768) in Lake Orta, NW Italy
by Stefano Bovero and Paola Viviana Trovò

Many snakes live close to water, with several groups displaying morphological, physiological, or behavioral adaptions to aquatic environments. Although marine snakes have been found at depths beyond 200 m, freshwater snakes are rarely reported at depths larger than a few meters. Here we report freshwater depth records ...for the dice snake Natrix tessellata, an aquatic snake belonging to the family Natricidae. Dice snake was observed at depths down to 17 m, including in habitats below the thermocline, in Lake Orta (Northern Italy). These observations open new perspectives related to the biology and physiology of Palearctic freshwater snakes belonging to the family Natricidae.

by Zubair AhmedHaseeb Ahmed Lalika and Eric Kirschenhofer

The present study is based on the examination of specimens housed in different museums and collections, including those of Lianghong Bin (China), Bernd Jaeger (Germany), Saeed Azadbakhsh (Iran), Alexander Anichtchenko (Latvia), Martin Hackel (Czech Republic), Ron Felix (Germany), and the first author (ZACP). A prelimin...ary survey was randomly conducted in various areas of Pakistan from 2016 to 2023. A precise investigation revealed 17 subspecies and 36 species within 31 genera, distributed across 12 subfamilies in the family Carabidae. This survey also documented twenty-three new records for the country, expanding our understanding of their distribution. All determinations presented here are confirmed and validated by Löbl & Löbl (2017). Subfamily Harpalinae tribe Anthiini with 02 species Anthia (Anthia) sexguttata mannerheimii, A.
