Article
Full-text available
Societal and policy trends are leading to major demands on food systems, including a transformation towards more sustainable and resilient farming systems. Research is increasingly highlighting the importance of considering the landscape scale in such transformations, with the understanding that such an approach will require agricultural landscape...
Article
The evidence that most agricultural landscapes are failing to deliver on biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services provision suggests that future landscapes will need to be more explicitly designed. Although recent research has produced a number of ecological and social principles that should form the basis of agricultural landscape design p...
Article
Conservation biology is a "mission driven discipline" that must navigate a new relationship between conservation and science. Since conservation is a social and political as well as an ecological project, conservation biologists must practise interdisciplinarity and collaboration. In this paper we asked: 1) What motivations do conservation biologis...
Article
Sustainable agricultural transformations are essential to navigate today's social-ecological challenges. One such transformation increasingly advocated through new policies is the reduction of pesticides. Whilst such policies can encourage farmers to switch to alternative farming practices, a dramatic and rapid top-down approach to pesticide reduct...
Article
Full-text available
Global processes manifesting as activities in local places have led to an increase in documented conservation conflicts. Conservation conflicts are sometimes labelled human-wildlife conflict, focusing only on the direct negative impact of species (usually wildlife) on humans or vice versa. However, many authors now recognize that conservation confl...
Article
With nitrate levels exceeding the thresholds defined by the European "nitrates" Directive, and the presence of pesticide residues used by the sector's agricultural activities, the water in the catchment areas of the Auxerrois has been the subject of concern for some thirty years. Thus, at the end of the 1990s, the representatives of the public auth...
Article
Full-text available
Food systems are changing through various socioeconomic and policy processes. For example, in France, following concerns over the effects of pesticides on ecosystems and health, the French government launched the “Ecophyto II+” plan in 2019 that aims for a 50% reduction in the use of pesticides by 2025. This top-down food system transformation is l...
Chapter
Conflicts between agriculture and biodiversity conservation in Europe are increasing, due to multiple demands from agricultural ecosystems, including a growing need for high quality and good-value agricultural products, as well as the provision of biodiversity and ecosystem services. Currents trends such as globalization, European policies, and glo...
Article
Compensation schemes are important tools to counteract crop or livestock loss caused by wildlife of conservation concern. We adopted a research action approach that focused on local actors' knowledge and evaluations of a compensation scheme for carnivore depredation on livestock in Mexico. We conducted 165 questionnaires with livestock producers in...
Chapter
Multiple anthropogenic challenges threaten nature’s contributions to human well-being. Agricultural expansion and conventional intensification are degrading biodiversity and ecosystem functions, thereby undermining the natural foundations on which agriculture is itself built. Averting the worst effects of global environmental change and assuring ec...
Article
Transformative changes in agriculture at multiple scales are needed to ensure sustainability, i.e. achieving food security while fostering social justice and environmental integrity. These transformations go beyond technological fixes and require fundamental changes in cognitive, relational, structural and functional aspects of agricultural systems...
Research
Supplementary information for Marshall, Lecuyer and Calmé (2020). Includes full survey questions, tables with information on the outputs of statistical models, and figures.
Preprint
Compensation schemes are important tools to counteract crop or livestock loss by wildlife of conservation concern. Here we adopted a research action approach that focuses on local actors' knowledge and evaluations of a compensation scheme implemented to support carnivore conservation in Mexico. Participants rated criteria covering various aspects o...
Article
Conservation focuses on environmental objectives, but neglecting social concerns can lead to feelings of injustice among some actors and thus jeopardise conservation aims. Through a case study on a biodiversity conflict around jaguar management in Southern Mexico, we explored actors' feelings of injustice and their associated determinants. We emplo...
Article
Conservation biology faces critical challenges that require collaborative approaches, including novel strategies to support interactions among actors in biodiversity conflicts. The goals of this study were to investigate the concept of common ground across multiple issues and to explore its practical application for the support of environmental man...
Article
A failure to address social concerns in biodiversity conservation can lead to feelings of injustice among some actors, and hence jeopardize conservation goals. The complex socio-cultural and political context of the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve, Mexico, has historically led to multiple biodiversity conflicts. Our goal, in this case study, was to expl...
