Welcome! The aim of our research is to help develop sustainable and resilient agroecosystems which have biodiversity and ecosystem services as a basis for improvement. We integrate concepts and methodologies from various disciplines to study how management practices affect the bioprocesses involved in maintaining or recovering ecosystem services and its impact on productivity along stress and fertility gradients. We also seek to better understand how root systems and the rhizosphere can help adapt crops to more sustainable soil management practices and impending changes in resource availability.

Agroecological Intensification

We quantify the benefits/tradeoffs of agroecological management approaches on system productivity and provision of ecosystem services
