However, managed cultural landscapes differing in land use intensity and landscape heterogeneity also offer diverse habitats for organisms. The maintenance of stable and functional ecosystems is clearly a high priority, especially as humans depend on them for their contributions to the provision of fertile soils, clean water, clean air, pollination of crops and wild plants and other ecosystem services.

Drivers shaping regional and local patterns of biodiversity and ecosystem function. The last decade has been characterized by serious attempts to prevent further loss of biodiversity. 2% Figure 1.

Unaffected species include those not at risk today (Source: ALARM risk assessment team). land is slightly smaller compared to the continuous GRAS scenario due to the decrease of yields of crops. A large use of surplus areas is assumed. ◙ The quadrupling of the oil price in BAMBU-SEL first sounds like a safe recipe for an economic disaster, and so it is (grossly minus a fifth of the GDP) – for less than five years.
