Title :

The potential use of butterflies & dung beetles in environmental impact studies: an example from Zimbabwe

Abstract :

A system for monitoring the health of terrestrial environments is required. In Africa most environmental studies are involved with large mammals while the invertebrates have been neglected. Of the Invertebrates butterflies and dung beetles in particular are two possible candidates. For environmental monitoring the advantages and disadvantages of using these groups are discussed. Results from a recent study, suggest butterflies as a good possibility. It is recommended that systems are produced that:

1) help local people  monitor their area;

2) identify areas of high diversity and interest and;

3) make use of “sacred” patches for conservation.
