Fabrice DeClerck, Heidi Asbjornsen, Juliann E. Aukema, Karen Garrett, Thomas R. Gordon, John Lambrinos, Margaret M. Mayfield, Stacy Philpott, Kimberly N. Russell, and John Tyndall

This Distributed Graduate Seminar (DGS) aims to synthesize current ecological information on the role that biodiversity in agricultural landscapes (agrobiodiversity) plays in providing ecosystem services. In recent years numerous studies aimed at examining the importance of agroecosystems to the conservation of biodiversity have been published. These studies focus on identifying the types of agricultural landscapes, and landscape components that support the greatest levels of biodiversity (Dale, Pearson et al. 1994; Daily, Ehrlich et al. 2001; Horner-Devine,... more
