Riccardo Bommarco
I'm Professor in Agricultural Entomology at the Department of Ecology. I perform research on insect and plant ecology in agricultural landscapes, and how it influences plant protection, pollination and yield of agricultural crops. I design sustainable cropping systems in collaboration with other researchers and stakeholders.


I explore how crop production and land use in agriuclture affect the distribution, abundance dynamics of biodiversity. I focus on insects and other arthropods that provide ecosystem services, in particularl plant protection, biological control of agricultural pest insects, and pollination.


My main research areas are

* Diversified agriculture
* Ekosystem services
* Biodiversity conservation
