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 and diversification strategies affect the bioprocesses involved in providing critical ecosystem services and impacts on productivity and sustainability outcomes. We also seek to better understand linkages between diversification, soil health and resilience of agroecosystems to various biotic and abiotic stresses. Finally, we explore how root systems and the rhizosphere can help adapt crops to more sustainable management practices and improve resource use efficiency.
