Abstract

Widespread “linear” agricultural systems are increasingly dependent on artificial inputs and ignore the essential contribution of biodiversity and natural processes to food production. Biodiversity in this context is generally considered a nuisance, for example biodiversity may compete with primary crops and livestock, reduce quality of the crop, and is considered a burden or at least redundant.
