Zoological Biodiversity

Prof. Dr. Emily Poppenborg Martin

The working group of Zoological Biodiversity deals with questions of sustainable land use and biodiversity-driven ecosystem functions and services. We study the connections between land use intensity and landscape context, and the conservation and resilience of biodiversity and associated ecosystem services, such as natural pest control and pollination.

The working group of Zoological Biodiversity deals with questions of sustainable land use and biodiversity-driven ecosystem functions and services. We study the connections between land use intensity and landscape context, and the conservation and resilience of biodiversity and associated ecosystem services, such as natural pest control and pollination.

Our priority is to combine ecological sustainability with agricultural food production now and under changing future conditions. We explore ways to achieve this goal at the field, landscape and cross-regional levels by performing syntheses of empirical data, field and laboratory studies of the impacts of landscape structure and agricultural management on biodiversity, ecosystem services and agricultural production.
