Abstract Organic management has the potential to mitigate negative impacts of intensive farming on biodiversity. We aimed to determine the effects of management system (organic vs. conventional), local habitat conditions and the surrounding landscape on ground-dwelling spiders (Arachnida: Araneae) in vineyards. We studied spider species richness, abundance and community composition in fifteen pairs of conventional and organic vineyards along a gradient of landscape composition in Germany. In spi...

Abstract Modern production forests in Europe have closed canopies. As a consequence, the biodiversity associated with open woodland is declining. Forest grazing that created open conditions was once widespread. It was largely abandoned during the 20th century but is currently receiving increasing attention as a tool in nature conservation. In order to elucidate the value of newly created wood pastures for the conservation of birds and grasshoppers we selected nine wood pastures (WP) in southern ...

Continuous availability of food resources, such as pollen, is vital for many insects that provide pollination and pest control services to agriculture. However, there is a lack of knowledge about the shared or complementary use of floral resources by such species, which hampers more effective landscape management to simultaneously promote them in agroecosystems. Here, we simultaneously quantified pollen use by a bumblebee (Bombus terrestris) and a mason bee (Osmia bicornis), two bee species reco...
Abstract Semi-natural habitats (SNH) are vital to sustain pollinators and natural enemies, and the ecosystem services they provide in agroecosystems. However, little is known about the relative importance of different SNH types and their vegetation traits for pollinators and natural enemies. Yet, such knowledge is essential for effective habitat management to promote both functional arthropod groups and associated multiple ecosystem services. We quantified vegetation traits and abundances of pol...

Managing agricultural landscapes to support biodiversity and ecosystem services is a key aim of a sustainable agriculture. However, how the spatial arrangement of crop fields and other habitats in landscapes impacts arthropods and their functions is poorly known. Synthesising data from 49 studies (1515 landscapes) across Europe, we examined effects of landscape composition (% habitats) and configuration (edge density) on arthropods in fields and their margins, pest control, pollination and yield...
Abstract Freshwater ecosystems are coupled with their riparian area. Emerging insects are prey for predators in the riparian zone, enriching the terrestrial ecosystem with energy and nutrients. Stressors associated with agriculture can alter insect communities in water and on land, resulting in complex response patterns of terrestrial predators relying on prey from both systems. Examining the effects from individual agricultural stressors such as pesticides is hampered in landscapes with intensi...

The role of generalist predators in biological control remains controversial as they may not only reduce pest populations but also disrupt biocontrol exerted by other natural enemies. Here, we focus on spiders as a model group of generalist predators. They are among the most abundant and most diverse natural enemies in agroecosystems. We review their functional traits that influence food-web dynamics and pest suppression at organisational levels ranging from individuals to communities. At the in...
Abstract Entomopathogenic fungi (EPF) are important antagonists of soil-dwelling insect pests adapted to living in agricultural soils. Little is known about EPF in vineyards, where they could be effective against soil-borne pests such as grapevine phylloxera or larvae of the June beetle. However, the high frequency of fungicide applications might reduce the effectiveness of EPF in vineyard soils. We compared effects of organic and conventional management, fungicide applications and soil paramete...
