Table 1 Criteria used to classify farming landscape

From: Pollination and biological control research: are we neglecting two billion smallholders

  Field size
Farming landscape 3 ha ≥5 ha ≥10 ha
Smallholder ≥33% ≤33% -
Dualistic ≥33% - ≥33%
Large-scale - ≤33% ≥33%
  1. Farming landscapes were classified by the percent of a studies’ landscape composed of different sized fields (arable and permanent cropland). These criteria were suitable for all the studies used in our selected reviews, but they do not encompass all combinations of field size.
