Brief description of the main scopes: 

I have been studied almost last 20 years farmland biodiversity. It have been my passion, work and hobby.

My main target in current post-doc position it to conduct meta-analyse to investigate agri-environment schemes and landscape gradient effect for cropland arthropods concurrently.

Additionally I analyse bumblebees and plants foodwebs relationships with seasonality effect.

Main profile in keywords: 
agri-environmental schemes, farmland biodiversity, ecosystem services, landscape structure, land-use intensity, meta-analysis.
