About this book

Examines the idea that agricultural landscapes can be designed more creatively to take the needs of human populations into account while also protecting, or even enhancing, biodiversity. McNeely and Scherr present a thorough overview of the innovative concept of "ecoagriculture" and assess the global impact of agriculture on wild biodiversity. They also describe the challenge of reconciling biodiversity conservation and agricultural goals and outline and discuss the ecoagriculture approach. Case studies are presented to illustrate key strategies.
