Attention to the effects of agriculture on biodiversity is currently
increasing. Yet the measurement of biodiversity is both time-consuming and
costly. Considering the limited budgets available for biodiversity conservation,
it is timely to focus on the cost analysis of biodiversity indicators in order to
ensure the optimization of the scarce funds available. We present the cost
analysis of operational data from the fieldwork efforts undertaken in the
measurement of biodiversity indicators at farm-scale. Methodological issues
are discussed.
