Hyvönen, Terho; Huusela-Veistola, Erja and Kuussaari, Mikko (2009) Enhancing ecosystem service provision by floral biodiversity in long-term set-asides. In: Proceedings of the workshop, European Weed Research Society, p. 21.
Species richness of pollinators increased throughout the four-year experiment in all treatments. Pollinator species richness and abundance were highest during the whole experiment in the seed mixture containing meadow plants but the difference to the other seed mixtures decreased during the last two years. The experiment showed that the benefits of applying alternative seed mixtures vary between ecosystem services. This suggests that the promotion of each ecosystem service requires specific management.
