Issues need addressing


+How biophysical, ecological, economic and cultural factors affect the Jevons Paradox or the Forest transition trends?

+Effect of non-intensive agriculture on habitat loss


+Understand the macroeconomic aspects of intensification (such as effect of trade, export policies and certification)

Agriculture production and food security

+Develop agroecological methods of increasing yield and analyze its efficiency

+Better understand the role of the whole food chain (production, retailers and consumers) on either enhancing or hampering governance arrangements for securing food

Ecology and ecosystem services

+Meta-analyses of the current knowledge of agriculture intensification on different species in tropical and temperate regions

+Quantify ecosystems loss due to intensification in different spatial and temporal scales

+Use other biological indicator other than species richness, such as composition, endemic rate and phylogenetic diversity
