Agricultural systems in space and time - the dynamic mosaic of land use

Special issue. Agriculture - systems - landscapes - resources

Description :
This article illustrates that the study of landscape changes requires more than land use statistics; a useful approach must be based on spatial sampling. It suggests that tracing the use of a specific unit of land through history can be an efficient way of decoding spatial messages and translating them into information about the dynamics of the agricultural resource management strategies. Selected cases from different agroecological environments, in Denmark, Burkina Faso and Niger, are presented.
