    Fabrice DeClerck

    Position: Program Leader, Agrobiodiversity and Ecosystem Services

    Work Address: Parc Scientifique Agropolis II, 34397 Montpellier Cedex 5, France

    Research Activities: I conduct research on how biodiversity can be conserved in agricultural landscapes and what the functional contribution of that conserved biodiversity is to the provision of ecosystem services, both on-farm, and common pool resources.

    My work spans the theoretical relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem services, and the applied, working mostly with agricultural landscapes of Mesoamerica and Africa.

    I am also interested in the relationship between agrobiodiversity and human nutrition.
