Modelling natural control of crop pests across agricultural landscapes
Natural control of crop pests by beneficial predators and parasitoids provides substantial benefits to crop production worldwide. Despite increasing availability of empirical data from across the globe, generalized models linking landscape-scale land-use to pest control are currently lacking. My goal is to synthesize existing knowledge and data on crop-pest-natural enemy systems using functional ecological approaches and, based on this work, to build a framework for spatially explicit models of natural pest control delivery across agricultural landscapes.
