Ph.D. Study: Solitary bees and bumblebees in a Danish agricultural landscape - See Google Scholar link in right-hand menu.
In my Ph. D. project I studied and clarified several aspects of the ecology and biology of solitary bees and bumblebees occurring in the fragmented semi-natural habitats of a Danish agricultural landscape:

  • Behavioural adaptations in a solitary bee species, to reduce parasitism from a nest parasite.
  • Foraging- and nesting conditions for wild bees in hedgerows, forest edges, field- borders and other linear and areal habitats. 
  • Seasonal activity and succession of bee species. 
  • Species richness and relative abundance, including estimation of the actual number of species occurring in the agricultural landscape. 
  • Dispersal patterns in a winter oilseed rape field, importance of bees in pollination and potential competition from honeybees.
