Work of our research group covers various topics ranging from studies on pollinators and pollination ecology in agricultural landscapes and seminatural habitats to the mesocosm experiments studying the interacions of below and above-ground ecosystem functions and services. In addition to that our experiments on soil decomposition and pest control contribute to cooperation with other research topics helping cooperation between the various research groups. Involving the Futures Studies Department at Corvinus University of Budapest approaches and practices of social sciences are also employed in our horizon scan research on ecosystems.
