To diffuse my findings, I have actively engaged in knowledge transfer to the public, including tens of radio- and television programmes, articles in newspapers and magazines, a book popularising science, presentations in seminars aimed at the general public and visits in primary and high schools. I have also involved volunteers in data collection, including two nationwide projects sampling dung beetle communities across Finland (1996 and 2008) and a volunteer-based survey of gall wasps (2007). Importantly, each of these projects has allowed me to collect a scientific data set unachievable by professional biologists, and to disseminate ecological findings of fundamental importance to the public.
