The Future of Human–Landscape Interactions: Drawing on the Past, Anticipating the Future

Without question, humanity is at a crossroad amidst rapid environmental changes. Some of these changes are natural, such as climate variability, but human-induced alterations on Earth have accelerated in recent decades, reaching a scale and intensity like never before. Virtually no place on Earth remains untouched by human activity. This special feature explores new scientific questions and frameworks for tackling research frontiers for understanding human–landscape systems.
