dc.description.abstractAgriculture is a leading driver of land use change. Although increased production is necessary to provide food and fiber to more than seven billion people worldwide, the conversion of natural lands to agriculture is associated with habitat loss, increased pesticide use and soil erosion. Habitat loss and degradation has fostered global declines in many bird species, raising concerns as birds provide important and sometimes irreplaceable functional roles in ecosystems. Identifying how to enhance both bird habitat and food security is a priority, yet our understanding of what birds contribute to agroecosystems is relatively poor. Research is needed to advance our understanding of species interactions and identify opportunities to achieve conservation objectives through sustainable agriculture.
