Valleys and Hills), correlations between direct (habitat and taxonomic richnesses)
and indirect (agricultural practices) indicators of biodiversity within 8 conventional and 8 organic farms, were calculated. Results showed that the main driver of biodiversity at the farm level was the number of cultivated and above all semi-natural habitats, in the French case study region as well as
in the other regions. This factor partially explained the highest biodiversity level of the French case study region. However, farming practices, specific or not
to the organic and conventional systems, most often drove biodiversity parameters at the habitat level. In fine, the project proposed the BIOBIO method for monitoring biodiversity in farms.
