At least two-thirds of the earth’s terrestrial environment consists of managed ecosystems such as agricultural systems, forest plantations and human settlements. The value of these ecosystems for biodiversity conservation cannot be neglected. However, the habitat quality, richness and abundance of naturally occurring species in these ecosystems can be improved further through planned management. This will not only help biodiversity conservation but also improve the productivity of these… Expand
