Tree for the three: birds, landscape and ecosystem services
From SDG Academy
Birds contribute to pest predation and control, among many ecosystem services at agricultural landscapes. Trees can contribute to ecosystem regulation, shelter and foraging of species, among others. In this video, Tainan Messina (University of Lisbon) presents a study based at intensive farming system areas of Central Portugal that aims to develop a methodology that integrates bird and crop data, pest predation indicators and local farmers. The holistic characteristic of the methodology could guide stakeholders and policies elaboration more effectively as they have learned that with the farmer's participation they have the potential to produce more accurate results.
