  • Nestboxes in Apple orchard

    Applied conservational animal ecology in rural area under intensive farming
    Due to the growing population and growing demand in the last decades, efficiency has become one of the most significant objectives and aspects of intensive agricultural production. While agricultural innovations focus on effective automation and the development of chemicals, long-term considerations require sustainable and improved natural conditions. Intensive farming and the reservation of our natural resources seem to contradict one another, but, we have to admit that the consequences of natural degradation are very costly in agriculture (e.g. artificial pest control as well as fertilization). Except for pests, low diversity and abundance of wild animals can find proper home in agrarian environments. This is, on one hand because of the disturbed environment, on the other hand because there are no suitable shelters, breeding and feeding sites. In this research We are seeking to answer the following question: is it possible to improve the natural state of the agricultural environment without hindering agricultural activity or even providing measurable advantages for farming? The research area is an orchard, a 200 hectare property owned by the Bold-Agro Ltd. in Derecske. Financed by rural subsidies, 1000 nest boxes were placed around this area in the last few years. One third of these nesting boxes have been used by birds so far; however, we do not yet have any exact and detailed data about what species and in what proportion have bred in the boxes. We also lack information about the breeding success. In this work we are planning to investigate the abundance and diversity of small birds living in the orchard. Moreover, we also plan to study if it is possible to increase species diversity and the population size of breeding birds by controlling the places and micro-habitat of the nest boxes.
