Object of research: 
Biodiversity, Insects, Small vertebrates, Community ecology, Land use, Ecotoxicology, Metabarcoding, Monitoring

Description

In the interdisciplinary joint project INPEDIV, we are investigating consequences of organic and conventional farming for biodiversity in protected areas. By use of traditional methods and new technologies, we are examining the effects of agricultural practices, the land use history and landscape matrix on a broad range of taxa across trophic levels (vegetation, soil invertebrates, flying and ground-dwelling arthropods, insectivorous vertebrates).

INPEDIV is funded for 3 years by the Leibniz Competition (March 2019 – February 2022).
