Summary
Abstract: Human use of the land has a large effect on the structure of terrestrial ecosystems and the dynamics of biogeochemical cycles. For this reason, terrestrial ecosystem and biogeochemistry models require moderate resolution information on land use in order to make realistic predictions. Few such datasets currently exist.

This collection consists of output from models that estimate the spatial ... View entire text
