N2 - The extent to which conversion to organic farming influenced habitat diversity within Less Favoured Areas (LFAs) was determined.

Each holding was characterised in terms of habitat classes using a rapid ground survey. Conversion to organic farming had little effect on overall habitat diversity. This could be linked to the physical challenges of farming in LFAs limiting management options.
