AbstractBiodiversity loss in Europe is critically associated to agricultural ecosystems. Recent statistics reported by SEO/Birdlife show that bird populations in Spanish agricultural land are declining during last years. Recent work with red-legged partridge (Alectoris rufa) in Central Spain and Navarra has shown that changes in agricultural landscapes and management techniques are the major drivers of long- and short-term wild population declines too, even in areas with such contrasting environmental features. Wild rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), hares (Lepus spp.), turtle dove (Streptopelia turtur), or common quail (Coturnix coturnix) population changes have also been associated to large-scale habitat changes, even in agricultural lands. Thus, agricultural changes are affecting not only overall biodiversity conservation, but also to game production, an important socio-economic activity in European rural environments. The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has recently recognized these facts, and has tried to promote a better role of agriculture in biodiversity conservation through the crosscompliance measures and agri-environmental schemes. However, some implementation failures of these measures and programs have been recently reported too. CAP is going to be re-formulated again in 2013, so we are at a crucial time to develop sound, rational and feasible guidelines to improve relations between agriculture, game production, and biodiversity conservation in farming areas. This workshop will review available information about the topic, indentifying research subjects that need more attention, and proposing specific measures to improve CAP implementation.
