Kastner, T., Matej, S., Forrest, M., Gingrich, S., Haberl, H., Hickler, T., Krausmann, F., Lasslop, G., Niedertscheider, M., Plutzar, C., Schwarzmüller, F., Steinkamp, J., Erb, K., 2021. Land use intensification increasingly drives the spatiotemporal patterns of the global human appropriation of net primary production in the last century.

We use the HANPP framework to consistently quantify and map global changes in land-use intensity in five land-use categories in 1910-2010. We find that land-use intensification was the most important driver of HANPP globally, increasing over time in all biomes. The research highlights the relevance of land-use intensity in global land system change and provides the empirical basis for further analyses.
