PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS... OF GENERAL INTEREST: GLOBAL LAND-USE CHANGE


Item #d94jun22

The following two articles are among seven constituting a special section in BioScience, 44(5), May 1994, based on a symposium at the 1992 Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America. The others deal with deforestation and modeling of land-use change.

  • "The Global Impact of Land-Use Change," D.S. Ojima (Natural Resour. Ecol. Lab., Colorado State. Univ., Ft. Collins CO 80523), K.A. Galvin, B.L. Turner II, 300-304. Discusses the key issues relative to rapid changes in land use and land cover that affect the global environment, and argues for studies that would integrate the social and natural sciences.
  • "The Worldwide Extent of Land-Use Change," R.A. Houghton (Woods Hole Res. Ctr., Woods Hole MA 02543), 305-313. In the last few centuries, and particularly the last several decades, effects of land-use change have become global. Developed countries bear some responsibility for environmental deterioration in developing nations. A new definition of development that includes sustainable use of resources is needed.
