This chapter contains sections titled:
What are the Major Consequences of Land-Use Changes for Ecosystems and their Ability to Provide Goods and Services in the Future?
How Do Ecosystem Responses Vary with Type of Land-Use Change, Stage in the Land-Use Transition, and Biophysical Setting?
What are the Appropriate Temporal and Spatial Scales for Analyzing Ecosystem Responses to Land-Use Change?
Can Trade-Offs between Intended and Unintended Consequences of Land Use be Quantified to Inform Planning and Decision-Making?
