About this item

This book reveals the nonlinear process of how land use changes affect human well-being through ecosystem service, and systematically elaborates how the changes in land use type and structure directly or indirectly have an influence on the ability of ecosystems to provide services for human society.The relationship between land use, ecosystem services and human well-being is a hot topic and there have been some important achievements in this field, but its constant growth warrants further research.The unique viewpoint, the scientific analysis methods and the precise language of this book make it not only a valuable guide for professors conducting research, but also a reference resource to help governments make decisions on relevant policies.Prof. Jinyan Zhan works at Beijing Normal University, China.
