ZusammenfassungThe aim of the paper is to give suggestions about how an agri-environment index can be
designed by taking into account specific ecological and economical factors that reflect
benefits and costs of biodiversity conservation. Main findings are that the general structure of
an agri-environment index is recommended to be a benefits-to-cost ratio, whereby the
conservation benefits are accounted for by the following factors which evaluate i) certain
criteria that value the ecological quality of a site and point out its significance for biodiversity
conservation (Conservation Significance Factor), ii) a criterion that reflects the connectivity
of the site which is an important factor for species migration (Connectivity Factor) and iii)
criteria that estimate the potential biodiversity outcomes induced by specific management
actions (Conservation Management Factor). The Cost Factor reflects the amount of money
that the landholder demands as compensation payment for his conservation services. The
paper points out that an agri-environment index is a promising approach to encourage and
compensate farmers for biodiversity-friendly management actions. Thereby, an improvement
of the effectiveness and efficiency of European conservation payment schemes is a decisive
contribution to biodiversity conservation in agricultural landscapes.
