Assessing the effects of artificial light at night on biodiversity across latitude – Current knowledge gaps

Jean Secondi, Aurélie Davranche, Marc Théry, Nathalie Mondy & Thierry Lengagne
Aim: Exposure to artificial light at night (ALAN) is a risk factor for organisms. Considering the spread and increasing intensity of night brightness across the globe, and the key role of light at all biological levels, alterations of ecosystems are expected. Yet, we cannot predict the severity of the effects of ALAN in several biomes because little information is available outside the temperate zone. We reviewed current knowledge and identified traits that could be targeted...
