    Abstract : The world-wide intensification of agriculture has led to a decline in species richness due to land use change, isolation, and fragmentation of natural and semi-natural habitats in agricultural and forestry landscapes. As a consequence, there is a current landscape management focus on the importance of green infrastructure to mitigate biodiversity decline and preserve ecosystem functions e. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Under 1900-talet har jordbruket förändrats drastiskt. Från ett småskaliga lantbruk där åkrar, ängar och betesmarker avlöste varandra, och varje gård var beroende av att både odla mat och hålla djuren med foder, till ett allt mer specialiserat jordbruk där både de enskilda gårdarna och hela regioner specialiserat sig mot antingen spannmålsproduktion eller djurhållning.
