Jessica Knapp

Researcher | PhD

My research explores aspects of landscape ecology and biodiversity conservation; specifically, how changes in land management affect pollinator populations and pollination services on farmland. To do this, I combine field-based experimental studies with computer modelling to understand how the availability of suitable habitat may affect pollinator populations and therefore, the delivery of pollination services.  My overall aim of this research is to identify sustainable management practices which can simultaneously improve pollinator populations and farmers' agricultural resilience.

I am currently working on a BECC funded project which aims to evaluate the effects of pesticide exposure on pollinators and pollination services to red clover. This will involve working with beekeepers, crop growers, land managers and policy makers to ensure that agricultural landscapes can support healthy pollinator populations and deliver sustainable pollination services.
