Metrics details. Traditional healing methods involving hundreds of insect and other invertebrate species are reviewed. Two questions are addressed: how can totally different organ systems in a human possibly benefit from extracts, potions, powders, secretions, ashes, etc. Even though therapeutically used invertebrates are generally small, they nevertheless possess organs for specific functions, e. They have a nervous system, endocrine glands, a heart and muscle tissue and they contain a multitude of different molecules like metabolites, enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, secretions, etc. Bearing that in mind it seems likely that a single species prepared and used in different ways could have a multitude of uses. But how, for example, can there be remedies for breathing and other problems, involving earthworms, molluscs, termites, beetles, cockroaches, bugs, and dragonflies?
We then suggest how future work can address fundamental assumptions and limitations by investigating trait functionality and the effects of intraspecific variation, assessing the potential for sampling methods to bias the traits and trait values observed, and enhancing the quality and consolidation of trait information in databases. Biodiversity is often described exclusively in terms of the distinct taxonomic entities species which it contains, and measured in terms of its taxonomic component, taxonomic diversity e. Taxonomic approaches, however, offer limited insight into the evolutionary and mechanistic underpinnings of ecological phenomena; these have recently been studied using alternative approaches for describing biodiversity. For instance, phylogenetic approaches emphasize organisms' evolutionary affiliations, and measure the phylogenetic component of biodiversity, phylogenetic diversity Cadotte et al. Most progress has been witnessed in plant ecology reviewed in Funk et al.
