I am conducting my masters research within the wider PaNDiv experiment, which is an experimental grassland that assess the effects of nitrogen enrichment, plant community diversity, plant functional diversity and fungal pathogen exclusion on ecosystem functioning.

My project aims to assess the direct and indirect effects of these experimental manipulations on insect abundance, diversity and their consequent effects on plant communities. I hope to disentangle these effects, to further understand which aspects of global change are driving changes in insect communities.
