Characterizing Land Use Change in Multidisciplinary Landscape-Level Analyses
Economists increasingly face opportunities to collaborate with ecologists on landscape-level analyses of socioeconomic and ecological processes. This often calls for developing empirical models to project land use change as input into ecological models....
Conservation Contracting in Heterogeneous Landscape: An Application to Watershed Protection with Threshold Constraints
A key issue in the design of land use policy is how to integrate information about spatially variable biophysical and economic conditions into a cost-effective conservation plan. Using common biophysical scoring methods, in combination with economic...
