Life on earth in critical care?

Butterflies and beetles are losing ground, but the wolf and beaver are rallying. What is the current health status of the multiform life on our planet? And how important are those other life forms? Professor Hans Van Dyck keeps his finger on the pulse and gives us an accessible assessment and prognosis. Frederik Lucien De Laere intersperses the facts with poetry from his latest collection Opabinia, in which he takes on the role of extinct and almost extinct animals.

Season’s Thinker Hans Van Dyck
Hans Van Dyck is a biologist. As a professor of Behavioural Ecology at the University of Louvain-la-Neuve, he studies multiform life – or biodiversity – and lectures about it animatedly. He wonders who the animal winners and losers are in a landscape that is geared to humans.
