  • Researchers have found that the overall biodiversity at a vanilla operation in Madagascar didn’t decline in places farmed more intensely.
  • Even vanilla farms on land previously cleared to raise other crops offered enough tree coverage to attract more species than land left uncultivated.
  • Farmers could plant more vines and harvest more vanilla pods without harming the number of species found there.
