My research interest concerns both behavioural and conservation ecology, but recently especially the interface between the two disciplines. Using space-for-time substitutions in designed studies I investigate how anthropogenic change interacts with animals’ dispersal constraints to affect population persistence, community composition and ecosystem services in mosaic landscapes. To understand population persistence, I perform observational and experimental studies of foraging of insects and birds in agricultural landscapes. These studies, based on modern foraging theory, are used to develop predictive models of how animals utilize mosaic landscapes.
My research has combined studies founded in contemporary scientific theory with emphasizing their potential application. This has resulted in a close collaboration with conservation authorities, e.g. the Swedish Board of Agriculture concerning the design of agri-environment schemes aimed at preserving biodiversity in farmland.
