Ecosystem service in field crops
I am an agro-ecologist interested in the role of biodiversity in agricultural production through their functions. My research focuses on the insect pollination service in rapeseed and sunflower and on the biological control of field crop pests. Through different experimental and empirical approaches, my work aims to quantify the benefit of these services on farmers’ yields and incomes, but also to identify the components (wealth, abundance, …) of pollinator and predator communities that modify these ecosystem services. I am also studying how landscape elements and agricultural practices can modify biodiversity in plots and how this affects agricultural production. The aim of my work is to contribute to the development of innovative low-input farming systems through multifunctional agricultural landscapes.
