||P.3.11 2nd paragraph: "Large areas of the earth’s surface have been converted from primary vegetation to anthropogenic
habitats. Newbold et al. (ref 69) compiled data from >250 space-for-time studies to assess the local scale
consequences of land use for biodiversity in a range of animal and plant taxa. Here, [investigators] focus on results that apply to plants (T. Newbold, personal communication), of which the clearest was that local species richness was ∼30% lower on agricultural lands (by far the dominant human land use) than it was in minimally disturbed primary vegetation."
