Abstract: A conference Conserving Farmland Biodiversity: Lessons learned and future prospects was held in Wexford, Ireland on the 25th and 26th of May 2011. Through a combination of keynote presentations and theatre presentations, delegates were informed of latest developments in policy and research relevant to farmland biodiversity in Ireland. Four main broad categories dominated the content of the conference: agricultural policy, agri-environment schemes, High Nature Value farming systems, and a variety of case studies that assessed the success of specific conservation actions. As the European Union refocuses its commitment to halting biodiversity loss, reform of the post-2013 CAP is proceeding with an increased emphasis on environmental goals. This conference provided a timely discussion of these policies, and the conservation needs and actions for Irish habitats and species. Here we provide a summary of the main themes and issues presented at the conference.
