The Contributions of Stewardship to Managing Agro-Ecosystem Environments

Abstract Concerns about the management of agro-ecosystems in Ontario Canada have been precipitated by the increasing intensity of agriculture operations and concerns about its impact on the

The natural drivers and the effects of landscape transformation for dragonflies of the Cape Floristic Region

Rivers of the Cape Floristic Region (CFR), South Africa, are naturally heterogeneous and complex ecosystems. Habitat heterogeneity is crucial for maintaining the high levels of biodiversity observed

Economic development of local communities and biodiversity conservation: a case study from Shennongjia National Nature Reserve, China

Abstract.Age structure, educational level and economic situation of farmers living in Shennongjia National Nature Reserve, Central China, were analyzed. Results showed that the population will

The diversity and distribution of topsoil and leaf litter arthropods in timber plantation landscape mosaics

To determine the diversity and distribution of topsoil and leaf litter arthropods within four dominant biotopes occurring within an EN-plantation landscape mosaic in KwaZulu-Natal, Midlands, it was found that hydromorphic and dry grasslands were two distinct biotope, both of which should be conserved.

Surface-active arthropods in organic vineyards, integrated vineyards and natural habitat in the Cape Floristic Region

The Cape Floristic Region (CFR), South Africa, is a biodiversity hotspot challenged by intensive wine production. Innovative approaches are being explored to optimize wine production without

Nutrient Cycling Budgets in Managed Pastures

About 53 million km2, or 40% of the Earth’s land surface is grassland, containing about one-third of the global stock of terrestrial C. Grasslands are ecosystems where the dominant vegetation

Preliminary comparison of landscape pattern-normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) relationships to Central Plains stream conditions.

A comparison of LPMs and NDVI indicated that NDVI had greater promise for monitoring landscapes for stream conditions within the study area, and the amount of variation explained in water quality parameters was generally lower than that from NDVI or vegetation phenology metrics derived from time-series NDVI data.

The definition of a particular agricultural ecosystem is inherently difficult, partly because of the complexity of even the simplest system and partly because of the diffuse character of its

Arable acronyms analysed – a review of integrated arable farming systems research in Western Europe

A number of long-term research programmes on integrated farming systems and their sustainability have recently been completed or are currently under way, and are compared with some parallel programmes in Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland and France.
