From bats to bees: effects of artificial electromagnetic fields on biodiversity

Funded by The Leverhulme Trust.

The recent, rapid increase of artificial electromagnetic fields (EMF) in natural environments has recently been identified as one of a major emerging issue threatening biodiversity. Yet, there are currently insufficient data for an evidence assessment. Using bats (vertebrates) and bumblebees (invertebrates) as model species, I aim to test the potential impacts of EMF arising from power lines and the commissioning of 5G wireless technology on biodiversity. This work is of broad applied value as there is an urgent need to quantify the effects of EMF on biodiversity so that we can mitigate any negative effects.
