Abstract:
The Land-Use and Land-Cover Change Science/Research Plan is an important document for the global change research community and those interested in the subject for at least two reasons. Firstly, the area of science is vital one. Human alternations in land cover as a result of the use of land-based natural resources not only have local and regional impacts, but can also have important effects at the global level. Secondly, this is the first time that the IGBP and HDP have mounted a combined initiative in which responsibility is equally shared netween the two bodies.
