CHINESE GEOGRAPHICAL SCIENCE - Spatial and Temporal Changes of Arable Land Driven by Urbanization and Ecological Restoration in China
Published on October 21, 2019
Arable land decreased by 3.31%. Urbanization and ecological restoration programs were the main drivers of arable land loss, while reclamation of other land cover types was the primary source of increased arable land.

Natural capital degradation worldwide signals the growing need for larger investments in both nature conservation and ecosystem services provision and management. The role of large-scale ecological restoration is a vital part of the work that is needed
Developing precipitation- and groundwater-corrected stream temperature models to improve brook charr management amid climate change
Published on May 30, 2019
Conserving coldwater stream ecosystems in a warming world requires understanding how water temperature changes will affect the sustainability of coldwater fish populations such as brook charr (Salvelinus fontinalis). To date, many models for predicting st

The extent to which the telecoupled food trade affected the pericoupled trade and intracoupled processes holds implications for the true extent of production driven by distant demands.
Eco-certification protocols as mechanisms to foster sustainable environmental practices in telecoupled systems
Published on May 20, 2019
This paper uses the telecoupling framework to investigate how distant systems are connected through flows of eco-certified forestry products and demonstrates how these connections drive environmental law compliance at the rural property level.
