Biodiversity and ecosystem services
Biodiversity and ecosystem services (and disservices!) on organic farms firstname.lastname@example.org Welcome to a seminar with Carmen Blubaugh from University of Georgia, USA. The seminar is a part of the
Insects and rodents can keep agricultural weeds in check
By increasing biodiversity and taking advantage of ecosystem services, we can reduce the use of herbicides in agriculture. An example of an ecosystem service is seed predation by insects and rodents.
Plant protection fungus can control the behavior of plant pathogenic fungi with the help of small RNAs
For the first time, researchers have shown that one fungal species can control the behavior of another fungus using secreted RNA molecules. It has important uses in food safety to protect crops from
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.
