The data show that taxa of the pollinator guild may perceive landscapes quite differently, and hoverflies may play an important role in maintaining pollination services in agricultural landscapes unsuitable for bee species.
Landscape context of organic and conventional farms: influences on carabid beetle diversity
Habitat loss, trophic collapse, and the decline of ecosystem services.
A new approach to assessing the implications of habitat loss for loss of ecosystem services by examining how the provision of different ecosystem services is dominated by species from different trophic levels is described and a mathematical model is developed that illustrates how declines in habitat quality and quantity lead to sequential losses oftrophic diversity.
Relationship among the species richness of different taxa.
The potential of a correlative approach to species richness is strongly diminished by the overall low level of variance explanation and some suggestions for future research are inclusion of several taxa in models aiming at regional richness predictions, improvement of knowledge on species correlations in human dominated systems, and a better understanding of mechanisms underlying richness correlations.

It is concluded that agri-environment schemes for the conservation of biodiversity in cultivated landscapes have to secure management for both habitat quality and heterogeneous landscape mosaics.

Intensive land use reduces the diversity and abundance of many soil biota, with consequences for the processes that they govern and the ecosystem services that these processes underpin. Relationships…
Global decomposition experiment shows soil animal impacts on decomposition are climate-dependent
Inclusion of soil animals will improve the predictive capabilities of region- or biome-scale decomposition models, soil animal influences on decomposition are important at the regional scale when attempting to predict global change scenarios, and the statistical relationship between decomposition rates and climate, at the global scale, is robust against changes in soil faunal abundance and diversity.
