Mustafa, A., Ebaid, A., Omrani, H. & McPhearson, T. 2021. A multi-objective Markov Chain Monte Carlo cellular automata model: Simulating multi-density urban expansion in NYC. Computers Environment and Urban Systems 87, 101602.
Cellular automata (CA) models have increasingly been used to simulate land use/cover changes (LUCC). Metaheuristic optimization algorithms such as particle swarm optimization (PSO) and genetic algorithm (GA) have been recently introduced into CA frameworks to generate more accurate simulations. Although Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) is simpler than PSO and GA, it is rarely used to calibrate CA models. In this article, we int...
Mazzero, H., Perrotton, A., Ka, A. & Goffner, D. 2021. Unpacking decades of multi-scale events and environment-based development in the Senegalese Sahel: Lessons and perspectives for the future. Land 10(7), 755.
A major challenge faced by human societies is to promote development that truly makes difference for people without jeopardizing their environment. This is particularly urgent in developing countries where, despite decades of development programs, local populations often live under poverty thresholds. With this study, we participate in the ongoing debate about the necessary global revision of development theory and practice in...
Lundquist, C., Hashimoto, S., Denboba, M.A., Peterson, G., Pereira, L. & Armenteras, D. 2021. Operationalizing the Nature Futures Framework to catalyze the development of nature-future scenarios. Sustainability Science 16(6), 1773–1775.
Scenarios and models are powerful tools for exploring the likely future outcomes of alternative social-ecological development pathways and for informing policy decisions. However, one of the key messages made by the Methodological Assessment of Scenarios and Models by the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) was that existing scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services have important s...
Love, D.C., Allison, E.H., Asche, F., Belton, B., Cottrell, R.S., Froehlich, H.E., Gephart, J.A., Hicks, C.C., Little, D.C., Nussbaumer, E.M., da Silva, P.P., Poulain, F., Rubio, A., Stoll, J.S., Tlusty, M.F., Thorne-Lyman, A.L., Troell, M. & Zhang, W. 2021. Emerging COVID-19 impacts, responses, and lessons for building resilience in the seafood system. Global Food Security-Agriculture Policy Economics and Environment 28, 100494.
The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns are creating health and economic crises that threaten food and nutrition security. The seafood sector provides important sources of nutrition and employment, especially in low-income countries, and is highly globalized allowing shocks to propagate. We studied COVID-19-related disruptions, impacts, and responses to the seafood sector from January through May 2020, using a food syst...
Lavery, T.H., Morgain, R., Fitzsimons, J.A., Fluin, J., Macgregor, N.A., Robinson, N.M., Scheele, B.C., Selwood, K.E., Spindler, R., Vuong, H., West, S., Wintle, B.A. & Lindenmayer, D.B. 2021. Impact indicators for biodiversity conservation research: Measuring influence within and beyond academia. Bioscience 71(4), 383–395.
Measuring, reporting, and forecasting research impact beyond academia has become increasingly important to demonstrate and understand real-world benefits. This is arguably most important in crisis disciplines such as medicine, environmental sustainability and biodiversity conservation, where application of new knowledge is urgently needed to improve health and environmental outcomes. Increasing focus on impact has prompted the...
Kronenberg, J., Andersson, E., Barton, D.N., Borgstrom, S.T., Langemeyer, J., Bjorklund, T., Haase, D., Kennedy, C., Koprowska, K., Laszkiewicz, E., McPhearson, T., Stange, E.E. & Wolff, M. 2021. The thorny path toward greening: Unintended consequences, trade-offs, and constraints in green and blue infrastructure planning, implementation, and management. Ecology and Society 26(2), 36.
Urban green and blue space interventions may bring about unintended consequences, involving trade-offs between the different land uses, and indeed, between the needs of different urban inhabitants, land users, and owners. Such trade-offs include choices between green/blue and non-green/blue projects, between broader land sparing vs. land sharing patterns, between satisfying the needs of the different inhabitants, but also betw...
Kimanzu, N., Schulte-Herbruggen, B., Clendenning, J., Chiwona-Karltun, L., Krogseng, K. & Petrokofsky, G. 2021. What is the evidence base linking gender with access to forests and use of forest resources for food security in low- and middle-income countries? A systematic evidence map. Forests 12(8), 1096.
In nearly all parts of the world, an important part of people’s livelihood is derived from natural resources. Gender is considered one of the most important determinants of access and control over forests. It is thought that women and men within households and communities have different opportunities and different roles and responsibilities in relation to forest use. It is probable that when women have equal access to forests,...

Kahiluoto, H., Pickett, K.E. & Steffen, W. 2021. Global nutrient equity for people and the planet. Nature Food 2(11), 857–861.
The industrial world has converted inert soil and atmospheric nutrients into reactive fertilizer flows that endanger water quality, biodiversity and climate. Simultaneously, poor nations starve because of the shortage of these nutrients in agricultural soils. Here we propose a redistribution of accumulated nutrients to enhance food security while counteracting the current degradation of critical Earth system processes. Residue...
Jones, L., Constas, M.A., Matthews, N. & Verkaart, S. 2021. Advancing resilience measurement. Nature Sustainability 4(4), 288–289.
Resilience has rapidly risen to the top of the agenda for sustainability and development1. The concept underpins a number of high-level policy initiatives, including the Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Agreement. In the face of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and with billions of dollars’ worth of resilience investments being mobilized globally, resilience will continue to rise as a policy priority. The scale of these i...
