Socio-ecosystems and conflict
1. Conflicts between agriculture and biodiversity conservation in Europe: Looking to the future by learning from the past
2. Building a shared vision of the future for multifunctional agricultural landscapes. Lessons from a long term socio-ecological research site in south-western France
3. Broadening the scope of empirical studies to answer persistent questions in landscape-moderated effects on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning
4. Promoting crop pest control by plant diversification in agricultural landscapes: A conceptual framework for analysing feedback loops between agro-ecological and socio-economic effects
5. Designing farmer-acceptable rotations that assure ecosystem service provision in the face of climate change
6. Multiple global change impacts on parasitism and biocontrol services in future agricultural landscapes
7. Harnessing biodiversity and ecosystem services to safeguard multifunctional vineyard landscapes in a global change context
8. Effective biodiversity monitoring could be facilitated by networks of simple sensors and a shift to incentivising results
9. Coupling ecological network analysis with high-throughput sequencing-based surveys: Lessons from the Next-Generation Biomonitoring project
Dave has most recently begun to work with networks. He developed, with colleagues, a learning methodology to build networks from sample date. This has produced the largest, replicated network in agriculture. One of his particular interests is how behaviours and dynamics at the species level, as studied using the carabid-slug-weed system, build across species and their interactions to the dynamics of networks at the ecosystem level.
