Prof. David Kleijn
Prof. David Kleijn is an ecologist working at Wageningen University interested in biodiversity conservation on farmland and optimization of ecosystem services in agriculture. Together with his group he studies the impacts of land-use change on biodiversity and effects of biodiversity on agricultural production with the aim to identify win-win situations. This is increasingly done in collaboration with local stakeholders such as farmer organizations, municipalities, conservation organizations, water boards and provincial governments. Kleijn previously coordinated the successful EU FP5 EASY and FP7 LIBERATION projects and currently coordinates the H2020 Showcase project.
