I'm fascinated by infectious diseases, in particular the agents causing the diseases and their interactions with the surrounding microorganisms. The overall aim of my research is to address questions

Winter survival of predatory mites that are used against pests is examined

In greenhouses and in open-air crops, predatory mites are often used against thrips, dark-winged fungus gnats, and mites that damage the crops. But what happens if predatory mites, who do not usually

Research

Researchers at the Department of Ecology drill deep down into ecological issues without losing contact with major social questions. We study species – both those that are threatened and those that

Plant interaction in cropping systems

Plants do not see, hear, smell or test, but they communicate with each other in different ways including chemical signalling between different plants pairs. The aim of our research is to develop

Biodiversity Conservation

The Bommarco lab develops nature conservation of both rare and common biodiversity, focusing on the management and values of semi-natural grasslands and green infrastructure. Greener infrastructure:

Ecosystem services in agriculture

The Bommarco lab empirically and theoretically explores ecosystem functions in insect-plant-soil food webs in agricultural ecosystems. We apply this to crop production, pest control and pollination.

Bommarco lab

Bommarco lab

We perform research on insect and plant ecology in agricultural landscapes. We explore how farming practices, land use and climate affect biodiversity and ecosystem services such as crop yield,

Diversified farming

The Bommarco lab analyses databases to assess how diversified farming might enhance crop yield and ecosystem services in cropping systems. We examine impacts of climate change and diversified farming

SLU Risk assessment of plant pests

SLU Risk assessment of plant pests

We perform independent analyses which will provide support to the Swedish Board of Agriculture in their effort to counter the damage of non-indigenous pests.
