In this paper in One Earth the authors show that using deviations from a model of cropland extent in 1992 built on all available data improves models of recent (1992–2015) cropland expansion over and above using the best available existing data.

New research just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) shows that human land use reshaped ecology across most of Earth’s land for at least 12,000 years, revealing that the main cause of the current biodiversity crisis is not human destruction of uninhabited wildlands, but rather the appropriation, colonization, and intensification of use in lands long managed sustainably by prior societies. Does global land use history matter for land system science today? How, and why? A GLP panel will discuss these questions together with authors of the paper, bringing together experts in land systems science, geography, ecology, and archaeology.
