Help from above - The importance of ecosystem services provided by tank bromeliads in tropical agro-ecosystems.

Ongoing

This project aims to disentangle the importance of ecosystem services provided by tank bromeliads in coffee and cacao agro-ecosystems and to disseminate new guidelines for their optimal on-farm management, balancing yields and biodiversity conservation. For this we will use a combination of survey and experimental approaches.
