Abstract: Nearly half of all land on Earth is used for agricultural purposes. My work as an ecologist over the last decade has centered on studying the impacts of land management strategies that diversify often simplified agricultural cropping systems in the United States. I will share stories about my research on multifunctional agriculture in my home state of Wyoming. I will highlight the diverse ecosystem services provided by agricultural lands, according to both scientists and farmers, and the opportunities and challenges that exist when coupling conservation with food production.
