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. Research,

Ecosystem services in agriculture

The Bommarco lab empirically and theoretically explores ecosystem functions in insect-plant-soil food webs in agricultural ecosystems. We apply this to crop production, pest control and pollination.

These insects are not so picky with their food – and therefore they can help us to protect out plants

Some insects eat both plants and other insects (omnivores). In the future they may play an important role in plant protection by eating insect pests in our crops. The problem is that they also feed
