    • Carbon emissions from agricultural expansion and intensification in the Chaco 

      Baumann, Matthias; Gasparri, Néstor Ignacio; Piquer Rodriguez, María; Gavier Pizarro, Gregorio Ignacio; Griffiths, Patrick; Hostert, Patrick; Kuemmerle, Tobias (Wiley, 2017-05)
      Carbon emissions from land‐use changes in tropical dry forest systems are poorly understood, although they are likely globally significant. The South American Chaco has recently emerged as a hot spot of agricultural expansion ...
    • Deforestation and cattle expansion in the Paraguayan Chaco 1987–2012 

      Baumann, Matthias; Israel, Christoph; Piquer Rodriguez, María; Gavier Pizarro, Gregorio Ignacio; Volante, Jose Norberto; Kuemmerle, Tobias (2017-04)
      The dry forests of Latin America are among the most dynamic deforestation frontiers in the world and are important carbon and biodiversity reservoirs. Our knowledge on the spatial patterns of deforestation and its proximate ...
    • Drivers of agricultural land - use change in the Argentine Pampas and Chaco regions 

      Piquer Rodriguez, María; Butsic, V.; Gartner, P.; Macchi, Leandro; Baumann, Matthias; Gavier Pizarro, Gregorio Ignacio; Volante, Jose Norberto; Gasparri, Néstor Ignacio; Kuemmerle, Tobias (2018-02)
      Agricultural expansion and intensification in South America's dry forests and grasslands increase agricultural production, but also result in major environmental trade-offs. The Pampas and Chaco regions of Argentina have ...
    • Effects of past and future land conversions on forest connectivity in the Argentine Chaco 

      Piquer Rodriguez, María; Torella, Sebastián Andrés; Gavier Pizarro, Gregorio Ignacio; Volante, Jose Norberto; Somma, Daniel Jorge; Ginzburg, Rubén G.; Kuemmerle, Tobias (Springer, 2015-05)
      Context: Land-use change is the main driver of habitat loss and fragmentation worldwide. The rate of dry forest loss in the South American Chaco is among the highest in the world, mainly due to the expansion of soybean ...
    • Multiscale spatial planning to maintain forest connectivity in the Argentine Chaco in the face of deforestation 

      Torella, Sebastián Andrés; Piquer Rodriguez, María; Levers, Christian; Ginzburg, Rubén G.; Gavier Pizarro, Gregorio Ignacio; Kuemmerle, Tobias (Resilience Alliance, 2018)
      Agricultural expansion threatens biodiversity due to habitat loss and fragmentation. In the Gran Chaco, a global deforestation hotspot, rampant cropland and pasture expansion raise concerns about the sustainability of these ...
    • The potential impact of economic policies on future land-use conversions in Argentina 

      Piquer Rodriguez, María; Baumann, Matthias; Butsic, V.; Gasparri, Néstor Ignacio; Gavier Pizarro, Gregorio Ignacio; Volante, Jose Norberto; Müller, D.; Kuemmerle, Tobias (2018)
      Agricultural expansion and intensification drive the conversion of natural areas worldwide. Scenarios are powerful tools to explore possible future changes in agricultural land use, how these may affect the environment, ...
    • The role of soybean production as an underlying driver of deforestation in the South American Chaco 

      Fehlenberg, Verena; Baumann, Matthias; Gasparri, Néstor Ignacio; Piquer Rodriguez, María; Gavier Pizarro, Gregorio Ignacio; Kuemmerle, Tobias (2017-07)
      South America’s tropical dry forests and savannas are under increasing pressure from agricultural expansion. Cattle ranching and soybean production both drive these forest losses, but their relative importance remains ...
    • Trade‐offs between biodiversity and agriculture are moving targets in dynamic landscapes [Conjunto de datos] 

      Macchi, Leandro; Decarre, Julieta; Goijman, Andrea Paula; Mastrangelo, Matías Enrique; Blendinger, Pedro G.; Gavier Pizarro, Gregorio Ignacio; Murray, Francisco; Piquer Rodriguez, María; Semper-Pascal, Asunción; Kuemmerle, Tobias (2020)
      Understanding how biodiversity responds to intensifying agriculture is critical to mitigating the trade-offs between them. These trade-offs are particularly strong in tropical and subtropical deforestation frontiers, yet ...
