Organic farming does not increase soil organic carbon compared to conventional farming if there is no carbon transfer from other agroecosystems: A meta-analysis
(Csiro Publishing, 2021-11)
Context: Organic farming is based on the non-use of synthetic fertilisers and pesticides. Nitrogen inputs are derived from symbiotic fixation and organic fertilisers, which also contribute carbon to the agroecosystem. Soil ...

Bird occupancy in intensively managed agroecosystems under large-scale organic and conventional farming in Argentina: A multi-species approach
Several studies in European and North American agroecosystems conclude that organic farming benefits birds compared to conventional farming. Nevertheless, there are some biases toward these geographic regions and farm size. ...
The landscape complexity relevance to farming effect assessment on small mammal occupancy in Argentinian farmlands
The responses of organisms to organic farming depend on the taxonomic group and landscape complexity. Following the intermediate landscape complexity hypothesis, organic farming can compensate for the lack of complexity ...
