About the topic
One major challenge for biodiversity conservation is land use and its different forms and current transformations. this special issue calls for research at the intersection of land use, socio-demographic transformation, climate change, and biodiversity conservation. we look for how cross-sectoral and multi-level complexities are challenging biodiversity conservation on one side, but offer also an ideal setting in addressing fragmentation on the other. we are welcoming social scientific applications from different disciplines such as political science, policy studies, human geography or economics and are interested in social-ecological inter-linkages and multi-method approaches.

However, globalization and consequent anthropogenic activities have led to the erosion of the natural resource base and [...]
