JOURNAL OF LAND USE SCIENCE - Land-use changes across distant places: design of a telecoupled agent-based model
Published on November 18, 2019
We apply the framework to design an agent-based model (TeleABM) that represents land-use changes in telecoupled systems to investigate how local land-use changes are affected by flows. The Brazil–China telecoupled soybean system is used as a demonstration.

Conservation programs can come with hidden costs -- often to vulnerable populations.
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.

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.
Published on May 1, 2019
We evaluate whether recent land-system science research into telecoupling provides a basis to set normative goals or priorities for addressing sustainability in coupled human-natural systems.
Published on April 14, 2019
We compile different indicators for assessing interregional ES flows and evaluate their suitability for national and regional ES assessments.
We use the metacoupling framework to illustrate how fisheries catches were locally, regionally, and globally interconnected in 1950–2014.
