Title and possible merge[edit]

The title should be in lower case, with the exception to the first letter (i.e. "Land use, land-use change and forestry"). I also wonder if this merits to be an article on its own. It should most likely be merged with either land use or deforestation or related articles. ~ UBeR 22:59, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Reference to Cement Production[edit]

there is a minor reference on this page to "cement production" being a major contributor to carbon emissions. I went to the Cement page ( ) to find hidden in the Climate section that it produces 5% of all man-made CO2 emissions. Wow !! Can the reference in this page be a link direct to the climate section under "cement" ? Sorry - my Wiki skills are still developing Rzyzkc (talk) 07:04, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Wikiproject Earth[edit]

Hello i have recently proposed the Wikiproject Earth. This Wikiproject`s scope includes this article. This wikiproject will overview the continents, oceans, atsmophere and global warming Please Voice your opinion by clicking anywhere on this comment except for my name. --IwilledituTalk :)Contributions —Preceding comment was added at 15:36, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Add Portal:Global warming[edit]

Add Portal:Global warming. See

for obvious connection. (talk) 00:10, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

I don't see a connection. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 00:12, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
You don't have to, others have seen it. (talk) 00:14, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Fixed. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 00:18, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
See Template talk:Global warming now. (talk) 00:40, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
I recently added a few entries to the template. The main link between land use change/forestry to global warming IMO is that the IPCC uses it as a net climate forcing; changes in land use artificially change Earth's albedo (ie. forest-to-desert would increase albedo, increasing local cooling, while removal of forests decreases Earth's net carbon sink, assuming it is still a sink, thus increasing global warming through higher GHGs). Are there any other areas of dispute? ~AH1 (discuss!) 00:46, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
As far as I can tell, this article should not exist. It started as a combination of land use and deforestation, and has taken a WP:POVFORK from there. In any case, those articles should be in the template and portal. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 02:26, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

(od) done. (talk) 08:34, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Image relating to tropical land use[edit]

Energy networks displaying the relative annual energy flux (coloured arrow width weighted by calculated energy flux (kg per hectare per year)) and biomass (coloured node diameter weighted by total biomass) among the functional feeding guilds: predators (red), omnivores (blue), detritivores (yellow) and herbivores (green). Each panel represents an energy network for one of the four land-use transformation systems.

This diagram is from a recent open access (CC-BY) paper in Nature Communications. It may be relevant to this or a related article, but I'll leave that up to this article's contributors.

Confusing phrase[edit]

This one in second section: "The most recent options for rule changes under consideration are summarized in a "Non-Paper" the co-chairs of the contact group on LULUCF (as of June 12).[5]" but could not find out how to fix it. Non-paper the co-chairs? josei (talk) 23:43, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just modified one external link on Land use, land-use change and forestry. Please take a moment to review my edit. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit this simple FaQ for additional information. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, you may follow the instructions on the template below to fix any issues with the URLs.
