Wildlife in the UK is "in trouble", with almost 2,000 species of birds, animals, insects and plants known to have declined in the past half century, experts warned.
Some 60% of the 3,148 British species studied have seen a reduction in numbers or range, with 31% suffering major declines, according to a report released by a coalition of conservation and research organisations.
Well-loved species from skylarks to hedgehogs are struggling in the face of threats that include loss of habitat, humans' management of the countryside and the increasing issue of climate change.
Almost three-quarters of butterfly species have declined in the past decade, plants are going extinct from some counties at a rate of one every other year and the UK has lost around 44 million breeding birds since the late 1960s, the State of Nature study found.
The Deputy Prime Minister will say that Tory backbenchers are "consumed by game playing" after a week dominated by revolts over Europe and gay marriage.
He will however dismiss talks of a an early break-up between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, during a speech in Westminster.
Speculation over the coalition's future was fuelled this weekend when the Prime Minister raised in an interview the prospect of governing alone.
Mr Cameron told Total Politics magazine that despite some "frustrations", the coalition remained the best way to get things done.
"But if that wasn't the case then we'd have to face the new circumstances in whatever way we should,' he added.
Pastor David Johnson has survived three tornadoes in Oklahoma, and was just one block away when the latest one struck.
Speaking to Daybreak's Lucy Watson he said it is "amazing" the amount of help people have offered to the survivors.
He said: "People just kept showing up one after another to help out, and people then kept coming to the doors donating water, foods and goods, it was amazing, we ended up having over hundreds people coming through the doors just bringing things."

Cure the NHS campaigner Julie Bailey said NHS boss Sir David Nicholson had not accepted responsibility for what happened at Stafford and is simply "waiting for his retirement".
"We're disappointed that he's not going immediately to be honest", she said, "this man presided over the biggest disaster in the history of the NHS, he'll be leaving with a huge pension pot and with his knighthood intact but he'll be going eventually and then we can start to cure the NHS."
American Red Cross volunteer Donald Thurmon has told Daybreak that his need to help those affected by the tornado in Oklahoma was instinctive.

Shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna told Daybreak:
"The problem is what we see [companies] do is artificially reduce their tax bill, and this is a serious issue because business and society, we're mutually dependent", he added, "if one factor in that relationship doesn't meet its obligations then the whole system can fall apart."
Tornado survivors in Oklahoma have spoken to Daybreak's Lucy Watson about how they sheltered in the bathroom under a mattress to avoid the destruction.
"The three girls were in the bathtub and we put a mattress over our heads, we could hear the house being torn apart and then we felt the wind, and we knew that we were out in the open," Nathan and Amber Kriesel said.
The Kriesel's added that when the tornado had passed their three girls did not have a "scratch on them at all", they added, "as long as us five ended up together in the end, that's all that matters".
