MSCA winner will work in the Landscape and Conservation Ecology research group

Riho Marja, an Estonian researcher, won a Marie Skłodowska Curie fellowship (2022-23), and will work in the “Lendület” Landscape and Conservation Ecology research group of the Centre for Ecological Research for studying pollinator movement in agricultural landscapes. We plan to carry out several innovative experiments, where we mark bumblebees with individual tags to study their colony traffic and growth rate as well homing behaviour. For this, Riho will study agricultural landscapes in Hungary and Austria with collaboration with University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Austria. Additionally, we will conduct a systematic review involving meta-analysis about pollinators’ dispersal along a gradient from field edge towards to field centre.
