Overview

Overview

My research focuses on the conservation of species and habitats in human dominated environments, with a particular interest in plant-insect interactions. My research has included the impacts of biodiversity in local and surrounding areas on the ecosystem services provided to farmers, particularly pollination and pest regulation. I have also investigated the impacts of management and connectivity on the biodiversity found in agricultural ditches, an often overlooked habitat. My previous research in Scotland investigated the impacts of human-managed large herbivores on scarce montane willow communities. I am strongly interested in the links between people and the natural environment; and practical strategies that result in positive outcomes for both.

I am currently working on a project with Cornwall Council which aims to improve public areas in urban spaces for biodiversity and for people (www.cornwall.gov.uk/GI4G and www.cornwall.gov.uk/MSN).

Broad research specialisms:

 Insect conservation and biodiversity; Plant-insect interactions; Pollination; Pest regulation; Agricultural ecosystems; Urban biodiversity; Ecosystem services and natural capital.
