The Linde-Wildflower-Experiment is conducted at Linde Research Station and is funded by Zwillenberg-Tietz Stiftung, Havelland, Brandenburg. We are comparing biodiversity and abundance of various insect taxa in convential wildflower (WF) strips to those in an innovative design of Rolling WF blocks, and investigate their effectiveness on the diversity. Both, WF strips and blocks are used as structural elements to enrich biodiversity in agri-ecosystems
It has started in March 2022 with an initial project duration of three years.
