Less pervasive than intensification of human activities, land abandonment followed by forest regrowth occurring in more remote areas like mountain can also represent a serious threat to biodiversity through loss of species-rich grasslands. Here we show that the likely location of land abandonment can be predicted and those models can inform on where to protect threatened surfaces of high biodiversity.
