Insect biodiversity : field lab : standard operating procedures for APBI 260 Agroecology I field work at the UBC Farm, September to December 2014 van Reeuwyk, Marika


Students will work in teams to pilot a baseline study of the UBC Farm’s pollinator populations that will continue next spring. They will also conduct a survey of both pest and beneficial insects present across the variety of land use types on the UBC Farm. The primary objective of the laboratory is to develop a set of basic data for each land use type that will enable a better understanding of the pest, beneficial and pollinator insect populations present across the UBC farm and to identify potential biological control and pollination enhancement options for other similar farms.
