Figures from this paper

Community-based agroforestry initiatives in Nicaragua and Costa Rica
Curbing the loss of biodiversity is a primary challenge to conservationists. Estimates of current rates of species loss range from 14,000 - 40,000 species per year (Hughes et al., 2007), and althoughExpand
Land for Food & Land for Nature?
Opinions on how to limit the immense impact of agriculture on wild species are divided. Some think it best to retain as much wildlife as possible on farms, even at the cost of lowering yieldExpand
Correction for Green et al., Linking global drivers of agricultural trade to on-the-ground impacts on biodiversity
The authors note that the legend for Fig. 2 appeared incorrectly and the reference should be cited on page 23207, right column, first full paragraph, line 10, in the phrase “The authors therefore developed a hybridized MRIO for soy trade (42). Expand
Chapter Six – Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics of Agricultural Networks: Implications for Sustainable Management
Community and ecosystem ecology are paying increasing attention to evolutionary dynamics, offering a means of attaining a more comprehensive understanding of ecological networks and more efficientExpand
Do we have to choose between feeding the human population and conserving nature? Modelling the global dependence of people on ecosystem services.
A dynamic model is used to conceptualise links between the global proportion of natural habitats and human demography, through four categories of ecosystem services (provisioning, regulating, cultural recreational and informational) to investigate the common future of nature and humanity in terms of size and well-being.

Predictive model for sustaining biodiversity in tropical countryside
Using a well-studied tropical ecosystem in Costa Rica, an empirically based model is developed for quantifying the “wildlife-friendliness” of farmland for native birds and provides a basis for estimating and sustaining biodiversity in farming systems through managing fine-scale ecosystem elements.

It is argued that the seemingly inescapable conclusion that intensifying agriculture already underway is the main solution to the problem of biodiversity loss is wrong and that a more realistic framing suggests a view of conservation that is distinct from more traditional forms. Expand
Agroecosystems have gained a dominant positionon worldwide land-usage, and therefore preserving their biodiversity is crucial for environmental sustainability. Ants are one of the most widespreadExpand
