Observation of biodiversity in agroforestry

Observation of the evolution of auxiliary insects populations and invertebrates on agroforestry plots of the Château de Perdiguier, Hérault, France, under the Auximore project, national program initiated in 2013 by the Picardy Chamber of Agriculture (Northern France) in partnership with the National Museum of Natural History, INRA, AGROOF. The surveys conclude to a greater diversity of species in agroforestry than in conventional agriculture, and an increase in pollinators.


Agroforestry in a few words:
Agroforestry consists of reintroducing trees in the heart of agricultural plots. Among the impacts observed: Restructuring of surface soils, brake on soil erosion, upwelling of water and nutrients, richness of biodiversity, return of pollinators.
