Three new papers

Have a look at the publications. Three articles have been accepted in the last weeks. One article is a review on Functional ecology of wild bees in cities. Then there is a new text on ground beetles in riparian habitats, in which we compare the carabid diversity of nature and human impacted riparian habitats and set the baseline for future renaturation. Most recently there is a text on the relationship between birds and insects in urban areas.

New research project on urban pollinators

Implementing the Berlin Bee Strategy for conservation of bees and other pollinators in Berlin by optimising the protection of wild bees (funded bei Senatsverwaltung für Umwelt, Verkehr und Klimaschutz Berlin) – more info coming soon.

Field work news – Chapter 2

Biodiversity assessments at full blast

My last post belongs to the past by now – anyway, that means that I moved to my outdoor workplace. We are mapping sand lizard populations and sampling pollinators, moths (and recording bats at the same time) and still ground-dwelling arthropods. We also running an experiments to measure seed predation along urban gradients. Hopefully we are able to start another experiment on pollinator visitation rates soon – so long as the weather is co-operating.
