Develop Charisma and Become More Likable

Likeability Blueprint

Have you ever wondered why more people don't like you as much as you feel they should? Are you a nice person that simply doesn't get the attention and love from other people that you should? Believe it or not, this is not your fault, and it's nothing about you! All you have to do is find the method to use with people to make them like you, and have NO idea why they like you so much. The method is called Automagnetism. Automagnetism is the way that you carry yourself that suggests things to people's minds that makes them like you without ever knowing way. You will be able to set yourself apart once you use the Likeability Blueprint; people won't know what hit them! All that it takes is a little bit of solid effort, and you can be on your way to getting people all over the place to like you! Read more...

My Likeability Blueprint Review

Highly Recommended

I usually find books written on this category hard to understand and full of jargon. But the author was capable of presenting advanced techniques in an extremely easy to understand language.

My opinion on this e-book is, if you do not have this e-book in your collection, your collection is incomplete. I have no regrets for purchasing this.

Problems With Insect Conservation

Traditionally, most insects have been largely disregarded in conservation, on the premise that they may be secure under measures taken to conserve more charismatic taxa such as warm-blooded vertebrates. The latter are supposed widely to act as umbrellas for most or all coexisting species, but this idea is now recognized as oversimplistic, because many invertebrates are ecologically specialized and need detailed management to sustain them in the face of environmental change. However, without past emphasis on vertebrates, many habitats and sites recognized as of considerable importance for insects would surely have been lost. One attraction of basing conservation on groups such as birds or mammals is simply that they are relatively well known their diversity is limited and tangible, most of the species are named, and many are recognizable without having to capture and kill the animals for detailed examination their biology and habitat needs are reasonably well understood, and their...

Protecting Atrisk Insect Species

Conservation-based ranching of butterflies and other charismatic insects, like scarabs, can protect and conserve critical habitat for threatened species where the appropriate tropical forests remain intact and where live insect export is legal. The tropical forests of Central and Latin America, the Philippines, Madagascar, Kenya, Malaysian Borneo, Jamaica, and Indonesian Irian Jaya meet these criteria. These ranches not only offer protection to these charismatic insects and their habitat, but also serve as a sustainable means of economic development.

Potential Adverse Effects

Be grouped conveniently into five categories (1) beneficial species, including natural enemies of pests (lacewings, ladybird beetles, parasitic wasps, and microbial parasites), and pollinators (bees, flies, beetles, butterflies and moths, birds, and bats) (2) nontarget pests (3) soil organisms, which usually are difficult to study and identify to species (4) species of conservation concern, including endangered species and popular, charismatic species (monarch butterfly) and (5) biodiversity, which is the entire group of species in an area.

Demonstration Butterflyinsect Farm

While butterflies and dragonflies are often sufficiently charismatic to curry conservation attention, this may not be the case with less cryptic species. Nevertheless, the Red List does recognize intrinsic value, and gives equal weighting to all species on the list, no matter how small and brown the species. Such listed rarities become icons in their own right, although the more charismatic species, especially if rare, like the birdwing butterflies, are instant icons and 'stand in' for other insects both in terms of habitat protection and in the eyes of the public. This emphasizes, as we have observed in earlier chapters, the important mutualism between the fine-filter species approach and the coarse-filter habitat landscape one. We need both approaches for effective conservation.

Insects and the conservation of ecosystem processes

A keystone species could be considered as one whose impact on its community or ecosystem is large and disproportionately large relative to its abundance (Power et al., 1996). This concept, however, has been criticized as it threatens to erode the utility of the keystone concept (Hunter, 2000b). Paine's (1969) original idea was that the species composition and physical appearance of an ecosystem are greatly modified by the activities of a single indigenous species high in the food web. Such a keystone species influences community structure and ecological integrity, with persistence through time. Mills et al. (1993) have pointed out that the term keystone has since been applied to a plethora of species, at different levels in food webs, and with very different effects, both qualitative and quantitative, in their communities.

Ethical foundation for insect conservation

The Ethics Maggots

Jacobson (1990), with an educational perspective, has illustrated that conservation biology is an interdiscliplinary science and activity. It involves the basic biological sciences as well as the applied management sciences, such as wildlife management, forestry, range and forage management and fisheries. Impinging on conservation biology, besides the physical environment, is the implementational environment (planning, education, law, communication, public health, engineering and veterinary science) and the social environment (economics, political science, sociology, anthropology and philosophy). What is missing from this model, at least in explicit terms, is the role of spiritual beliefs. Yet conservation concerns everyone, as well as every organism. A conviction through spiritual involvement can play a major role in sustaining conservation action over and above the activities of scientists, managers and policy workers. This is particularly relevant in the case of insects, which are...

Symbolism And Reverence

Throughout human existence, many insects have been admired for their ingenuity, beauty, fantastic shapes, and behaviors. In some instances, the use of insects as totemic figures that may symbolize ancestry or kinship of humans with these organisms leads to a deep sense of adoration and reverence. In other cases, the resultant admiration has developed into a reverence for their inspirational and historical nature and a medium for symbolizing a variety of aspects of human life. In these situations, characterizations of organisms, in both illustration and sculpture, act as vehicles to convey human feelings rather than as objective expressions of entomological facts. Insect symbolism is best developed in the most advanced ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, and especially Central America, where the people were surrounded by a multitude of insects.

Culturing Insects

Zoos, particularly those with petting facilities, maintain some of the larger and more charismatic insects in captivity. Indeed some zoos have captive breeding programs for certain insects that are endangered in the wild - such as the Melbourne Zoo in Australia with its program for the endangered Lord Howe Island phasmid (Dryococelus australis), a large, flightless stick-insect. In New Zealand, several species of charismatic wetas (outsized, flightless orthopterans) have been reared in captivity and successfully reintroduced to predator-free offshore islands. Among the greatest successes have been the captive rearing of several endangered butterflies in Europe and North America, for example by the Oregon Zoo, with eventual releases and reintroductions into restored habitat proving quite successful as interim conservation strategies.

Insect Conservation

Biological conservation typically involves either setting aside large tracts of land for nature, or addressing and remediating specific processes that threaten large and charismatic vertebrates, such as endangered mammals and birds, or plant species or communities. The concept of conserving habitat for insects, or species thereof, seems of low priority on a threatened planet. Nevertheless, land is reserved and plans exist specifically to conserve certain insects. Such conservation efforts often are associated with human aesthetics, and many (but not all) involve the charismatic megafauna of entomology the butterflies and large, showy beetles. Such charismatic insects can act as flagship species to enhance wider public awareness and engender financial support for conservation efforts. Single-species conservation, not necessarily of an insect, is argued to preserve many other species by default, in what is known as the umbrella effect. Somewhat complementary to this is advocacy of a...

Passive Traps

The tropical pitcher plants belong to the genus Nepenthes, so named by Linnaeus after the drug nepenthe, which Helen of Troy was said to have dispensed in drink to soldiers to relieve their sorrow and grief. In giving this name, Linnaeus noted, What botanist would not be filled with admiration if, after a long journey, he should find this wonderful plant. In his astonishment, past ills would be forgotten when beholding the admirable work of the creator In Nepenthes, the pitcher develops at the end of a leaflike petiole. Indeed, the complexity and variety of pitchers in Nepenthes strains one's credulity, for it is hard to believe that what one is looking at is a leaf. Like their temperate cousins, Nepenthes spp. produce nectar to lure prey, which subsequently become intoxicated, lose their foothold, and fall into the trap. Nepenthes spp. generally produce climbing stems, thus elevating the pitchers, and perhaps thereby making them more accessible to potential prey.

Wild Silk Moths

These elegant moths inspire admiration and awe because of their great size (WS up to 20 cm, as in Arsenura ponderosa) and sumptuous color designs on broad wings. They are most often seen around electric lights, to which most are strongly attracted. Males bear highly developed, featherlike antennae that are extremely sensitive to the airborne molecules of the female sexual pheromones. With these organs, they may detect a female over a distance of several kilometers and fly upwind to find her. The female's antennae may also be feathered (but much less so than the male's) or merely pectinate or simple.
