Introduction; Agriculture, climate and future land use patterns: potential for a simulation-based exploration; Technology development and climate change as drivers of future agricultural land use; Agricultural transitions at dryland and tropical forest margins: actors, scales and trade-offs; World livestock and crop production systems, land use and environment between 1970 and 2030; Agricultural change and limits to deforestation in Central America; Rising food demand, climate change and the use of land and water; Population and economic growth as drivers of future land use in India. Explores key interactions between changes in agriculture, patterns of land use and efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions from agriculture. This volume is based on inter-disciplinary science and policy interactions, exploring the way land use may aid in addressing or be affected by the onset of climate change and alterations in food demand.
