agroecology, pollination ecology, wild bees

As member of the Lendület Ecosystem Services Research Group my research work focuses mainly on wild bees and pollination ecology. I study the effects of agricultural management at local and landscape scales, plant invasion and set-aside management on agrobiodiversity with a special focus on pollinators. I work on plant-pollinator networks and availability, temporal and spatial change of flower resources for honeybees (beepastures). Participation in science-policy interface (e.g. IPBES) and knowledge dissemination for public are important parts of my job.
