Douglas A. Landis is a University Distinguished Professor of Insect Ecology in the Department of Entomology at Michigan State University. His research focuses on the role of landscape structure in shaping insect and plant interactions in agricultural landscapes and the implications for pest suppression and pollination services. He is the author of 168 peer-reviewed journal articles, 25 book chapters and 58 Extension bulletins.

 

Sessions
Sessions highlight the state of the art in agricultural landscape research and promote critical exchange on pathways to more resilient and sustainable agriculture. Each session will last 90 minutes and include 3-6 presentations (decided by session organisers).

Masterclasses
Masterclasses are interactive sessions to show, learn and discuss new tools, methods or emerging topics in hands-on intensity. Masterclasses are organised and chaired by 1-2 persons, they last 3 hours and host about 15-40 participants (prior registration). Masterclasses attract senior and junior researchers alike. They are an excellent way to spread and test scientific ideas and to reinforce scientific networking. Conference participants are asked to sign up to one of the parallel masterclasses when registering to the conference.

Marketplace
We will organise a special format to support the dissemination of science-based tools and products. Researchers have the opportunity to exhibit their projects, tools and products related to agricultural landscape management at the landscape virtual marketplace.

Post-conference workshops
The workshops are taking place on Thursday, September 23rd, 2021 from 08:30 to 17:00.
