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 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...

Abstract Understanding the interactions between herbivores and natural enemies in fragmented landscapes is essential for conservation biological control. Studies including multiple enemies affecting multiple herbivores, plant damage and growth are needed. Here, we separated independent effects of (1) isolation of cherry trees from woody habitat and (2) the amount of woody habitat in the surrounding landscape (500 m buffers) on interactions between different groups of herbivores with their natura...
