Sara Ruas

I am a doctoral candidate in the Agro-ecology and Rural Development (ARD) group within the MFRC at GMIT. I am currently working in the FARM ECOs project. The main aim of my research is to provide stakeholders such as policy makers, farmers and advisors with the necessary evidence base for novel measures and practices to effectively protect and enhance biodiversity and associated ecosystem services in agriculture. My research interests include agro-ecology, plant ecology, landscape ecology, ecosystem services and agro-biodiversity.
