about this item

This volume traces changes in land use in China over the past 300 years, from the Qing dynasty to the present day. It briefly describes major periods of historical land-use changes, general trends, and population vs. land-used change in the past 300 years, then focuses on changes during the past 30 years, including urban, grassland, cropland, and forest changes; phenological characteristics and shifts under land-use change; and afforestation areas from the Grain for Green Program aiming to convert cropland to forestland to mitigate soil erosion problems. Included are the drivers and land conversions by national policy and spatial maps and associated data, as well as projections of future changes.
