MSc thesis: Stimulating flower-rich grassland on clay dikes
Dikes are often very varied, relatively nutrient-poor habitats, and can be home to typical grassland vegetation types (In Dutch for instance stroomdalgralsand or glanshaverhooiland) and can be great habitats for insects. Because o ...

Climate, vegetation, permafrost interactions in Arctic tundra
Arctic tundra vegetation is changing rapidly and is related to climate warming. We found that low shrubs, e.g. Betula nana, are important for protecting the underlying frozen ground (permafrost) against thawing. Thus, shrub expans ...

MSc Thesis: Effectiveness of biodiversity offsetting for pollinator conservation
In the Netherlands, protected grasslands destroyed due to development (e.g., road construction) need to be compensated for in the form of biodiversity offsets (the creation or restoration of ecologically equivalent habitat elsewhe ...

The rooting strategies of grasses
In grasslands, more than half of plant biomass may be found belowground, in roots. Roots play important roles in plant interactions, nutrient cycling and carbon storage, but our understanding of root form and function is still lim ...

Restoring flowering landscapes to bring back extinct bee species
About half of the 357 wild Dutch bee species are red-listed. Because bees are mobile organisms conservation management needs to target landscapes rather than fields or reserves. In the Geuldal, between Valkenburg and Gulpen, we ai ...

Herintroductie van Oud Bossoorten
De Brabantse bossen zijn relatief jong (<100 jr) en liggen op voedselarme dekzandruggen, veelal voormalige heiden. Een rijke bodem ontbreekt vaak, alsmede boomsoorten die rijk strooisel vormen. Door verzuring en verarming zijn vee ...

MSc thesis restoration ecology: reintroducing peatmoss to speed up peatland restoration
Peatlands in the Netherlands have become rare. All large reserves are currently incorporated into the Nature 2000 framework and are being managed to stimulate the return of ecosystem engineers: peatmoss. The problem is that ta ...

Can buckwheat cultivation contribute to wild pollinator conservation?
Buckwheat is a crop of the old days, but is gaining more ground due to an increase of demand and the biodiversity benefits it has. It is flowering for 100 days, and very rich in nectar and pollen. In the current agricultural lands ...

The contribution of solar parks to insect biodiversity conservation
The highly needed transformation towards renewable energies requires drastic changes to the landscape as we know it now. Next to numerous wind turbines, we need large solar fields to meet ever increasing energy demand. Such solar  ...
