GC033:
From Points to Pixels: Land Management and Land Use Change in Livestock Agroecosystems





Session ID#: 25979

Session Description:
The global footprint of pasturelands is more than double that of croplands, and livestock systems further exert high demand on the latter for grain. In addition to their large extent, livestock agroecosystems are highly diverse, for example in plant communities and management practices. This diversity poses barriers to linking fine-scale understanding with insights about the broader landscape that are necessary to minimize negative environmental impacts, such as on soil carbon and greenhouse gas emissions, while honoring social and economic priorities. This session focuses on addressing these challenges through the connection of high-resolution, site-scale research to larger-scale evaluations via biogeochemical modeling and/or development of remote sensing products. We invite submissions that address i) connecting site-scale measurements to larger spatiotemporal dynamics, ii) integrating assessments of environmental impacts with social or economic implications using remote sensing products or biogeochemical modeling, iii) developing tools for monitoring high temporal and spatial variability in livestock agroecosystems.
