Seminar of Department of Botany and Centre of Excellence EcolChange

Speaker: Prof. Catrin Westphal (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen)

Title of the talk: Integrating biodiversity and ecosystem services into cropping systems and agricultural landscapes

Time: Thursday, 28 October 2021 at 14.15

Place: virtual seminar in Zoom

Summary: Biodiversity within cropping systems is providing important ecosystem functions and services for agricultural production. To halt ongoing biodiversity declines due to agricultural intensification, measures are needed that aim at the diversification of cropping systems. This talk will focus on local and landscape scale measures that promote pollinators and crop pollination services. Moreover, changes in functional diversity of pollinator, bird and arthropod communities along gradients of local land use intensity and landscape heterogeneity will be explored.
