Abstract

For understanding the causes and effects of changes in land use it is critical to study the interactions between the temporal dynamics and the spatial pattern of land use. This chapter presents a modelling approach: the changes of alnd use as a function of the specific characteristics of cropping systems and feedbacks between land use and environment
