High Nature Value farming systems are important areas for biodiversity, and are a major focus of agricultural and biodiversity policy. In a Review paper in Journal of Environmental Management, Angela Lomba and colleagues identify the following highlights:
•An overview of the methodological approaches currently taken to identify HNVf is outlined.
•The inability to integrate HNVf data at varying scales across Europe is highlighted.
•The need to address data availability and spatial/temporal resolutions are highlighted.
•A novel collaborative framework to enhance HNVf monitoring and assessment is proposed. (Lomba et al. 2014).
