WP4 (Agro-ecological understanding) will provide knowledge on the ecological processes linking landscape and farming with biodiversity and ecosystem services essential to the design of all biodiversity sensitive farming systems. It will use a combination of empirical and modelling approaches to estimate the impact of management interventions and biodiversity conservation measures on farmland biodiversity, ecosystem services and food production, to estimate the contribution of tailored resource supplementation to enhancing biodiversity and ES at local and landscape scales and to assess the effect of land use intensification and land abandonment on biodiversity (pest, beneficial insects and species of conservation interest). WP4 will link through to practice, sharing its findings with WP5 to inform the development of biodiversity management and monitoring strategies, and indicator selection.
