The meeting had as main objective to write a scientific paper analysing the biodiversity data (butterflies, spiders, plants, birds, etc.) collected during 2013 throughout the eight European regions (France, United Kingdom, Germany and Catalonia) and 1 Canadian involved in this study.

The project Farmland focuses on the response of several components of biodiversity (plants, birds, butterflies, bees, etc.) and the ecosystem services they provide (pollination and pest control of crops) to the homogenization of agricultural landscapes (crop diversity, amount of agricultural plots, etc.). The ultimate goal is to identify points of convergence between agriculture, biodiversity and ecosystem services.
