Bommarco lab

We study insect and plant ecology in agriculture. We explore how farming practices, land use and climate affect biodiversity and ecosystem functions such as crop yield, pest regulation and

SLU Ninkovic Lab

Plants do not see, hear, smell or test, but they communicate with each other in different ways including chemical signalling between different plants pairs. The aim of our research is to develop

Honey Bee Health

We study the transmission of bee diseases within and between honeybee colonies, how bee health is affected by different biotic and abiotic factors and how bees defend themselves against bee diseases.

Insect Ecology

Insects are many, important and diverse. To understand insect diversity, we need to understand both the environmental determinants of insect diversity and abundances, the biotic interactions between

Department of Ecology

How can we manage forests and land without threating biodiversity and ruining ecosystem services? These divergent goals require a broad understanding of ecological interactions in nature.


We monitor and analyse the state and trends of Swedish biodiversity, to support efforts to achieve the Swedish environmental objectives regarding biodiversity. We also provide a basis for monitoring

About insect Ecology

Insects are many, important and diverse. Among other things, they recycle nutrients, disperse seeds, transmit disease, pollinate our crops – and eat part of them, too. They also provide food to many


By understanding the mechanisms underlying plant interactions it is possible to develop sustainable crop protection strategies based on design of cropping systems. We focus on the interactions

Report regulated pests

If you suspect an attack by a quarantine pest, you are obliged to report it to the Swedish Board of Agriculture by filling in a report form. Here you will also find more information about new and
