How much land is needed for global food production under scenarios of dietary changes and livestock productivity increases in 2030
Growing global population figures and per-capita incomes imply an increase in food demand and pressure to expand agricultural land. Agricultural expansion into natural ecosystems affects biodiversityExpand

Meeting global temperature targets?the role of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage
In order to meet stringent temperature targets, active removal of CO2 from the atmosphere may be required in the long run. Such negative emissions can be materialized when well-performing bioenergyExpand
