Worldwide decline of the entomofauna: A review of its drivers
Biodiversity of insects is threatened worldwide. Here, we present a comprehensive review of 73 historical reports of insect declines from across the globe, and systematically assess the underlying drivers. Our work reveals dramatic rates of decline that may lead to the extinction of 40% of the world's insect species over the next few decades. [...] The main drivers of species declines appear to be in order of importance: i) habitat loss and conversion to intensive agriculture and urbanisation; ii) pollution, mainly that by synthetic pesticides and fertilisers; iii) biological factors, including pathogens and introduced species; and iv) climate change

Mikä uhkaa hyönteisiä? Luonnontieteellisen museon hyönteistiimin vetäjä Pasi Sihvonen vastasi yleisön kysymyksiin | Yle Uutiset |
– Elinympäristöjen väheneminen, yksipuolistuminen ja pirstaloituminen ovat keskeisiä hyönteiskadon syitä. Toimet, mitkä edesauttavat hyönteisille tärkeiden elinympäristöjen säilymistä, ovat tärkeitä. Esimerkiksi kukkaniityt, kukkivat tienpientareet ja mesibaarit ovat tärkeitä ja yksittäisen ihmisen vaikutuspiirissä.

Shibboleth Consortium – Privacy Preserving Identity Management
Federated SSO.

"Shibboleth is a single sign-on log-in system for computer networks and the Internet. It allows people to sign in using just one identity to various systems run by federations of different organizations or institutions. The federations are often universities or public service organizations.

The Shibboleth Internet2 middleware initiative created an architecture and open-source implementation for identity management and federated identity-based authentication and authorization (or access control) infrastructure based on Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). Federated identity allows the sharing of information about users from one security domain to the other organizations in a federation. This allows for cross-domain single sign-on and removes the need for content providers to maintain user names and passwords. Identity providers (IdPs) supply user information, while service providers (SPs) consume this information and give access to secure content."
