Although widespread declines in insect biomass and diversity are increasing concerns within the scientific community, it remains unclear whether attention to pollinator declines has also increased within information sources serving the general public. Examining patterns of journalistic attention to the pollinator population crisis can also inform efforts to raise awareness about the importance of declines of insect species providing ecosystem services beyond pollination. We used the Global News Index developed by the Cline Center for Advanced Social Research at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign to track news attention to pollinator topics in nearly 25 million news items published by two American national newspapers and four international wire services over the past four decades. We found vanishingly low levels of attention to pollinator population topics relative to coverage of climate change, which we use as a comparison topic. In the most recent subset of ∼10 million stories published from 2007 to 2019, 1.39% (137,086 stories) refer to climate change/global warming while only 0.02% (1,780) refer to pollinator populations in all contexts, and just 0.007% (679) refer to pollinator declines. Substantial increases in news attention were detectable only in US national newspapers. We also find that, while climate change stories appear primarily in newspaper “front sections,” pollinator population stories remain largely marginalized in “science” and “back section” reports. At the same time, news reports about pollinator populations increasingly link the issue to climate change, which might ultimately help raise public awareness to effect needed policy changes.

蜜蜂无嗡嗡声:传粉媒介下降的媒体报道[生物科学]

尽管昆虫生物量和多样性的普遍下降正在科学界引起越来越多的关注,但仍不清楚在为公众服务的信息源中对传粉媒介下降的关注是否也有所增加。检查新闻工作者对传粉媒介种群危机的关注方式,也有助于提高人们对提供传粉以外的生态系统服务的昆虫物种减少重要性的认识。我们使用了伊利诺伊大学厄本那-香槟分校的高级社会研究中心克莱恩(Cline Center)开发的全球新闻索引来追踪新闻在两大美国国家报纸和四家国际电讯机构发布的近2500万新闻中对传粉媒介话题的关注。过去的四十年。我们发现,相对于气候变化的报道,对传粉媒介种群话题的关注度正在下降,我们将其用作比较话题。在2007年至2019年发布的大约1000万个故事的最新子集中,有1.39%(137,086个故事)是指气候变化/全球变暖,而在所有情况下只有0.02%(1,780)是指传粉媒介种群,而只有0.007%(679) )指的是传粉者的衰落。仅在美国国家报纸上才能发现新闻关注度的大幅提高。我们还发现,虽然气候变化的故事主要出现在报纸的“前部”,但传粉媒介种群的故事在“科学”和“后部”报告中仍然处于边缘地位。与此同时,有关传粉媒介种群的新闻报道越来越多地将这一问题与气候变化联系在一起,
