Landscape floral resources provided by rapeseed correlate with next-year reproduction of cavity-nesting pollinators in a national participatory monitoring program

To understand whether and to what extent these crops could contribute to the maintenance of pollinator populations, we investigated the inter-annual correlation between MFC resources and the reproduction of cavity-nesting pollinators (solitary bees and wasps) at a national scale.

Master thesis: Understanding the effects of structure and dynamics of agricultural landscape

Master thesis - This study investigates immediate and long-term effects of agricultural landscape and related farming practices on biodiversity. I used hurdle models to assess the link solitary bee nest-building or earthworm abundance and both farming practices and landscape variables.
