Recently I was reading about the coastal dune complex in my local area, which turns out to be very interesting geologically, and for plant and animal life. There are freshwater Dune Lakes and creeks flowing out to the ocean with some brackish plants of various degrees, as well as salt and freshwater marsh, and steelhead. 26 Federal and State threatened or endangered species exist here. Many species have been studied, such as the Western Snowy Plover and Steelhead. But there have been less than 80 studies ever concerning invertebrates.
The possible insects ,including butterflies are unknown. The lists of freshwater micro invertebrates and snails are incomplete.
I wonder in general, do we need more insect and saltmarsh invertebrate scientists? In your opinion, what life on earth could be studied more? I would like to see the local dune lake, creek, freshwater marsh, saltwater marsh, mudflats, and lagoon invertebrates get more attention.
