Credit points for diversity on farmland. Farmers measure biodiversity.
Hotspot 28: 24

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.
