Biodiversity is a vital part of all agricultural production, but farming systems centring on homogenizing practices and landscapes shrink that biodiversity and often pose a threat to ecosystems . To foster the emergence or productive, sustainable and resilient systems, agricultural research must take account the living world in its entirety, and the interactions between communities within production systems and landscapes or at the interface between agrosystems and natural ecosystems.
