In the last century, the grasslands of southern South America were rapidly converted to croplands, starting a fragmentation process that is still ongoing. Almost no information is available on the spatial patterns and environmental controls of these processes. Our objective was to characterize the degree of fragmentation and to analyze the environmental controls of landscape composition of the Rı́o de la Plata grasslands, in southern South America. We classified land cover types using three… CONTINUE READING
