    Abstract

    To measure species diversity on an agricultural holding directly would require great effort. Therefore, a project was set out to develop an evaluation system that assigns specific credit points to a variety of habitat characteristics and management options. This provides a proxy for all efforts undertaken on a farm to maintain and enhance biodiversity.
