  • Resumen:

Sustainable intensification attempts to address the issues associated with food production by developing approaches that minimise environmental impacts. A key aspect of sustainable intensification is ecological intensification, approaches that enhance the ecology of agricultural landscapes which in turn supports production. In this seminar I will discuss various projects that I have recently been involved where I have used my background in plant ecology and habitat creation to deliver ecosystem services with a focus on pest regulation and pollination.
