Biodiversity and Conservation Science
Here you can find our ongoing research projects. You can also find links to our collaborators and funding bodies.

The aim of the research group is to advance the scientific understanding of how human activities, such as habitat loss, habitat conversion and climate change, affects biodiversity and how this feeds back on the generation of ecosystem services. The research group emphasizes the fruitful combination of basic and applied research, to understand the effect of agriculture and forestry on the persistence of populations and the generation of ecosystem services such as pollination, biological control and carbon sequestration. An important part of our research is to understand the relative merits of different strategies to integrate conservation with agricultural and silvicultural production in terms of conservation goals, ecosystem service flows and resilience in a rapidly changing world.
