Abstract
During the project "Optimising nature conservation on organic farms" farms which implement approaches of nature conservation into practice were investigated. In the context of this project the vegetation of weeds on five organic farm were examined. The field margins and interior areas of the fields were analysed to study the effect of field size on biodiversity. Seven endangered arable field species of the Red List Data Book were detected. In the margins of the fields more endangered species and more complete plant communities than in the interior of the field were found. The results point out the positive contribution of organic farming to the preservation of arable field plants in fields.
