Resumen: "In response to the biodiversity crisis, and specifically the pressures from agricultural intensification, we need novel solutions to mitigate threats from unsustainable land use. Insects and other invertebrates contribute an enormous amount towards ecosystem services such as pest control, soil formation and pollination and their loss from these systems would be detrimental to the functioning of agricultural ecosystems. Thus, conservation of insects in agricultural ecosystems is as important for biodiversity as it is for the farmers growing crops. The solutions to insect conservation within agriculture need to consider the protection of biodiversity and conservation of ecosystem services."
