Water, air and soil pollution are generally well identified by all as major problems for biodiversity and for our health. The Global Assessment of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services published by IPBES in 2019 makes much of this.

Yet it is a major factor in altering our nocturnal environment, causing numerous disturbances to flora and fauna. Especially since 30% of vertebrates and 65% of invertebrates are wholly or partly nocturnal.
