Local services and regional biodiversity

Local ecosystem services can depend on regional circumstances.  Consider natural alternatives to pesticides in agriculture, for example.  To encourage the presence of a certain pest's natural enemies, measures taken at one farm (such as planting flowers along the edges of fields) may not be enough.  The green/blue arteries in the surrounding area also play a role.  Connecting such an initiative with neighbours and other parties in the surrounding area is important if it is to succeed.  Cooperation with others is crucial.
