Widllife in agricultural landscapes: patterns and processes


According to Caughley (1994), the need for human intervention in the wildlife at the population level has only four alternatives: increase a population that has been depleted, decrease a population that has expanded unduly, achieving the maximum sustainable yield of a population with economic value, or just keep an "eye" in populations that do not fit these categories. It is no coincidence that the alternatives proposed by Caughley include major fields linked to the current management of biodiversity, namely, biological conservation, control, sustainable use and monitoring. This study aims to determine the relationship between the patterns of biological diversity (ie, biodiversity) and the complexity of ecological and evolutionary processes (ie, biocomplexity) in agricultural landscapes; as well as improve the use of molecular markers and Bioacoustical in faunal survey studies, use of space and diet; and improve the long-term monitoring of wildlife in agricultural landscapes both at local and regional level. This study prioritizes agricultural landscapes, as changes in land use linked to expansion or intensification of agriculture are the main cause of biodiversity loss. However, agricultural landscapes still contains significant part of biota, including endangered, damaging and valuable species. (AU)
