Over the last century, the need for increased production led to a shift in the production patterns and an evolution of agriculture from traditional to intensive and industrial systems. This evolution of agriculture has been responsible for damage to the environment and notably to biodiversity. Indeed, the use of chemical products (such as fertilizers and pesticides) and the homogenization of agricultural landscapes and crop variety or domestic races are major threats to biodiversity and ecosystems wich can reduce the resilience of productions to global changes. This call, at the crossroads of different themes and issues addressed by BiodivERsA and FACCE-JPI, addressed two main issues:
