Agroecosystems dominate substantial portions of our landscapes. They require functioning biodiversity to maintain production value, and have massive potential for biodiversity conservation.

However, to achieve biodiversity conservation within agroecosystems, while also enhancing ecosystem resilience and ecosystem services, fundamental knowledge of ecological processes is required and must be accounted for in land management decision making. 

In this seminar, Associate Professor Hannah Buckley will describe the ongoing research being undertaken to address this in the ‘Enhancing native biodiversity in agroecosystems’ collaborative project within the Bioheritage National Science Challenge.
