Harmfulness of weather events and the adaptive capacity of farmers at high latitudes of Europe

The climate in high latitudes is characterized by large variability in the weather, leading to significant and diverse risks in agriculture. This study aimed to ascertain the most harmful weather events for different crops, and identify the potential for improving resilience of high-latitude agricultural systems to climate change and variability through diversified crop choices.

Different response of two Hemiptera species groups to sown wildflower strips: True bugs and leafhoppers

Sown wildflower strips should promote the species diversity of several insect groups in order to be an effective tool for the compensation of biodiversity loss in agricultural environments. We studied the responses of two herbivorous insect groups, Heteroptera (true bugs) and Auchenorrhyncha (leafhoppers), to the properties of wildflower strips in a three-year (2008–2010) study in southern Finland.
