Lektor

Research interests

  • Land use, production intensity and farming practices and their impact on farmland nature, especially on organic farms

  • Production systems and ecological functions of flora and insect fauna (natural enemies, pollinators) in agricultural landscapes.

  • Operationalising the concept of "eco-functional intensification": more knowledge/ha

  • Insect pest management on organic farms.

  • Integrated Pest Management and its practical implementation in Denmark
