Abstract:

Increasing demands are being made of Australia's agricultural landscapes and there are concerns that they may have reached a 'tipping point'. Farmers, scientists and conservationists are all now looking at ways that these landscapes can be made more sustainable by harnessing the ecosystem services, such as pest control and pollination, that native vegetation can offer. The emphasis in considering these issues is at the 'landscape' scale not the 'farm' or 'field' scale so all members of rural communities and other interest groups need to be involved in any solutions.
