Variation of farm spatial land use pattern according to the structure of the hedgerow network (bocage) landscape: a case study in northeast Brittany

Agriculture Ecosystems & Environment

The spatial pattern of fields and associated land use types in farms contributes to the landscape and its associated ecological dynamics. This pattern is also…

What type of hedgerows do Brown hairstreak (Thecla betulae L.) butterflies prefer? Implications for European agricultural landscape conservation

Insect Conservation and Diversity

1. Agricultural intensification is the main driver of global biodiversity loss. Agri-environment schemes (AES) are policy tools to counter this, but they need to be…
