Persistent negative effects of pesticides on biodiversity and biological control potential on European farmland
During the last 50 years, agricultural intensification has caused many wild plant and animal species to go extinct regionally or nationally and has profoundly changed the functioning ofExpand

Functional identity and diversity of animals predict ecosystem functioning better than species-based indices
Drastic biodiversity declines have raised concerns about the deterioration of ecosystem functions and have motivated much recent research on the relationship between species diversity and ecosystemExpand

Mixed effects of organic farming and landscape complexity on farmland biodiversity and biological control potential across Europe
1. Organic farming in Europe has been shown to enhance biodiversity locally, but potential interactions with the surrounding landscape and the potential effects on ecosystem services are less wellExpand

Exploitation of food resources by badgers (Meles meles) in the Swiss Jura Mountains
In our study three badger Meles meles populations separated by only a few km but subjected to different environmental conditions were compared. Differences are especially marked for climatic factors,Expand

Agricultural intensification and biodiversity partitioning in European landscapes comparing plants, carabids, and birds.
Effects of agricultural intensification (AI) on biodiversity are often assessed on the plot scale, although processes determining diversity also operate on larger spatial scales. Here, we analyzedExpand

Small mammals in agricultural landscapes: Opposing responses to farming practices and landscape complexity
Abstract Organic farming often counteracts the decline of various taxa owing to agricultural intensification, but little is known about the relative importance of local management and landscapeExpand

Species’ traits influence ground beetle responses to farm and landscape level agricultural intensification in Europe
Agricultural intensification may result in important shifts in insect community composition and function, but this remains poorly explored. Studying how groups of species with shared traits respondExpand
