Grassland management possible without species loss

Conflict between yield maximization and species conservation in ag appears reconcilable.

While the intensive management of grasslands is bad for biodiversity, a study by the Terrestrial Ecology Research Group at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany offers a ray of hope: If different forms of management are optimally distributed within a region, this can lead to higher yields without the loss of insect species.

In ideal cases, this will allow even more species to find optimal habitats. What is crucial here is that management is planned at the landscape level
