Summary

The importance of land-use intensity for biodiversity and ecosystem functioning was also the focus of the AGRIPOPES project, an ESF-funded network of 12 research teams across Europe. Using European agroecosystems, in particular wheat fields, as a model ecosystem, the project analyzed the effects of land use intensification parameters on biodiversity and the biocontrol potential of biodiversity. In a unique approach, more than 1300 wheat fields across were assessed and information about land use, biodiversity and ecosystem functioning assembled.
