Research

Our research activities include these main topics:

  • Ecosystem services and dis-services

  • Land-use effects on pollinators and pollination

  • Pollinators health and virus transmission

  • Conservation and restoration of pollinators

  • Tools for biodiversity quantification and mapping

 

We study the diversity, function and conservation needs of beneficial insects, pollinators in particular, in a variety of environmental and geographic context and scales. Our overarching goal in to gain insight on the main factors that shape the diversity, stability and resilience of pollinator communities and the pollination services they provide, to inform land management and conservation efforts.
