    Abstract

    Agricultural development is a well-known threat to the conservation of biodiversity and the loss and fragmentation of native habitats. It also is considered to be an important engine of economic development in developing countries. Changes in agricultural production systems might affect directly and/or indirectly both biodiversity and aspects of livelihood such as poverty and hunger. In this study it is attempted to described, as quantitatively as possible, the direct relation between species diversity within agricultural production systems and the productivity of these systems. A line of thought also is presented on how to link livelihood to agricultural outputs
