WP2: Above-ground biodiversity and ES: Über mich

WP2: Above ground biodiversity & natural pest control across spatial scales


  • Field- and landscape scale heterogeneity increase above-ground biodiversity and pest control services in vineyards

  • Negative effects of high-intensity pesticide use and intensive ground cover management on natural enemies and pest control services can be mitigated by landscape heterogeneity

  • Management options that benefit natural pest control services and vineyard profitability also have positive effects on biodiversity conservation
