The application of ecological theory and conservation biology to
agricultural ecosystems has become an important and growing
research field and undergraduate course component in recent years.
This book is both an academic textbook and practical guide to farm
conservation, and has evolved from the authors' extensive teaching
experience. It covers the ecology of farmed land, how agricultural
practices influence the environment, how agriculture has changed
over time and how the species that inhabit the agri-environment
have adapted. It also covers the history of agricultural policy and
subsidies and the development of agri-environment schemes. A number
of different farming systems are discussed, as are the difficulties
in determining their relative merits. Guidance is offered on how to
produce a workable farm conservation plan, and the final chapters
look to the future and the development of new, greener farming
