Summary

This thesis describes the work I have done during my Ph.D. studies at the Department of Bioscience, Aarhus University, under the supervision of Volker Loeschcke and Liselotte Wesley Andersen. This project is part of a larger project (REFUGIA project) aiming at understanding the effect of pesticide use and agricultural intensity in Denmark on a variety of species using genetic, ecological and simulation tools. The main aim of my part of this project was the investigation of the effects of pesticide use and agricultural intensity on wild animal species in the agricultural landscape, with particular focus on testing the hypothesis that organic fields act as genetic reservoirs for the re-colonization of organic fields.
