The Agricultural Ecology Group aims to facilitate knowledge exchange between both ecologists and academics.
The Agricultural Ecology Group aims to facilitate knowledge exchange between both ecologists and academics working in agricultural systems and those working in the food system in the widest sense including conservationists, farmers, social scientists and policy makers. The group is open to all BES members and non-members. We welcome offers of events and meetings.
- To be a forum for exchange of information between ecologists, conservationists, agricultural researchers, land managers and policy makers.
- To consider conservation in the farmed landscape, using ecological theory to address agricultural problems, economic and ecological sustainability of current farming systems, and the implications of agricultural policies.
- To do this: a) through meetings, workshops, field visits, an email bulletin board and a website b) through contact with other societies, both nationally and internationally.
