Pollinator Conservation and Ecosystem Services
The project will investigate the importance of landscape composition and resource availability in structuring pollinator communities. The project will use a range of field and experimental methods to understand the role of species identity in pollinator interactions, and how they are
mediated by landscape habitat configuration. We will utilize novel
analytical tools from network theory to bring landscape ecology one step
further. The research is expected to have both theoretical and applied
outcomes concerning the ongoing debate of land-sharing/land sparing
and the management of ecosystem services in modified landscapes.
