    As a result of urban development farmland in many countries is under pressure. Reasons to preserve farmland are related to cultural heritage, food safety, open space, the environment, but also slowing and restricting development is a reason. To protect farmland countries use different land use policies. This paper will look specifically at two jurisdictions: The Netherlands and a particularly rich farming area in British Columbia, Canada. For these areas we will investigate how the institutions and laws present in these jurisdictions contribute to agricultural land preservation.

    France

    The climate of the fen lands of Charente and Poitou in France is characterized by chronical spells of drought in the summer. The farmers however know how to make use of the spatial and temporal heterogeneity of the water resources of their environment, due to its hydromorphology, which creates a phenological time lag and spreads forage production (within and among fields, and within the forage systems). The expectations of the farmers regarding the management of water in the fens are confronted with those of other users (cereal growers, hunters, environmentalists), that are described.

Ground-dwelling spiders were surveyed in 24 sites across Ireland, with eight sites of each of the following habitat types: improved grassland, wet grassland and peatland.

Scattered, wedged properties of small size or of unclear ownership (undivided common land) are difficult to sell.
