      Impact of agricultural land use on water quality. The clearing activities of land can lead to increased salinity problems in a catchment and the export of sediments and the decomposition of organic matter in streams which can lead to acidity problems in the catchment (such as low pH, increased total acidity, and mobilization of dissolved heavy metals) (Fig. 2). China has great physical eastern plains and southern coasts of the country consist of fertile lowlands and foothills. They are the location of most of China's agricultural output and human population. The southern areas of the country (South of the Yangtze River) consist of hilly and mountainous west and north of the country are dominated by sunken basins .

    Most grazing lands are considered either range or pasture, but grazing lands also include grazed forest lands, grazed croplands, haylands, and native/naturalized pasture. These other land use types make up an additional million acres of privately owned grazing lands, or about 17% of the total U. S. grazing lands. Population and land use distributions. Figure 1 shows the geospatial distribution of land use (forest, grasslands, croplands, urban and build areas, and waterbodies; Ran et al., ) and population with the Yangtze River basin. The upper reach, except within the Sichuan basin, is characterized by higher elevations, lower average temperatures.

Sichuan - Sichuan - Economy: Sichuan, occupying an important position in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, is the strongest province in western China in terms of overall economic strength.

The Sichuan Basin has a good natural environment, abounds in specialty products, and commands an ample labour force. Despite having been reduced in size and population when. China - China - Agriculture, forestry, and fishing: As a result of topographic and climatic features, the area suitable for cultivation is small: only about 10 percent of China’s total land area.

Of this, slightly more than half is unirrigated, and the remainder is divided roughly equally between paddy fields and irrigated areas; good progress has been made in improving water conservancy. Effects of land use patterns on soil aggregate stability in Sichuan Basin, China Article in Particuology 6(3) June with 57 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

The earliest agricultural activities in Sichuan Basin can be traced back to the middle Neolithic Age. During the development process afterwards, the Qin and Han dynasties, the Sui and Tang dynasties, and the Northern Song Dynasty were three peaks of agricultural development.

The various natural conditions resulted in a variety of agricultural patterns in Sichuan by: 2. An Agricultural Survey of Szechwan Province, China: A Summary and Interpretation by John Lossing Buck.

Agroforestry systems similar to the traditional shifting cultivation systems represent a valuable conservation tool for the Amazon basin.

Agroforestry integrates agriculture with timber species and high diversity forest; silvopastoral systems are similar and combine cattle ranching with forestry. Production–living–ecological land (PLEL) is one of the research focuses of land planning and regional sustainable development in China.

This paper builds a three-level classification system of PLEL based on the identification of the main land use functions (LUFs). Taking typical towns in the hilly area of Sichuan Province, Southwest China as samples, the quantitative, spatial. Forest Visitor Maps for each national forest and grassland provide forest-wide information on attractions, facilities, services, and opportunities.

The forest plantation is an artificial forest of cypress (Cupressus funebris), which is the representative forest type throughout the central Sichuan Basin, Southwest China. Most of the forest in this area was planted between andbut prior tothe soil had been intensively used for agriculture.

Land Use and Agriculture in the Congo Basin The Congo Basin forests are inhabited by million people, many of whom are dependent upon forests for firewood, hunting and shifting cultivation. Amongst the countries of the Congo basin. Agricultural, water conservancy, forestry, science and technology and biological measures have been applied in CAD projects.

Huai basin (Yangtze and Huaihe river basins), the Taihu Lake basin and the Sichuan basin. This zone has a subtropical climate, optimum water supply and sunlight for producing grain, cotton, oil crops and fruits.

Methods to estimate greenhouse gas emissions and removals in the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) Sector can be divided into two broad categories: 1) methods that can be applied in a similar way for any of the types of land use (i.e., generic methods for Forest Land, Cropland, Grassland, Wetlands, Settlements.

Land and forests are intimately connected to how people live, particularly in remote and rural areas. The Congo Basin forest, for example, is home to 24 million people. Most of them rely on forests for their livelihoods.

Agriculture, forestry, and other land uses — known as AFOLU — is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, but it can also be part of the solution. This study analyzes the land use change in Jiangsu Province using three land use maps ofand The study results show that there was a significant change in land use.

The study covered 3 land-use types: forest, grassland and cropland. The forest plantation is an artificial mixed forest of alder (Alder cremastogyne) and cypress (Cupressus funebris), which is the representative forest type throughout the central Sichuan Basin.

Most of the forest was planted during in this area. [Objective] It has been included into national strategy that we are going to exploit the Yangtze river basin, promote the industrial gradient transfer, and realize sustainable development, to form the new economic supporting belt of China.

Industrial undertaking zone is the key area to the sustainable development of the Yangtze River economic belt. Population and income growth in the Reference Case scenario raise the demand for urban land in the Willamette Basin, which raises the value of developed land over agricultural and forest land.

This increases the area of developed land by 54% between andwhile decreasing agricultural and forest land areas by -8% and -1%, respectively. The basin once supported extensive subtropical evergreen broadleaf forests, but 5, years of agriculture have taken a toll on the natural environment.

Today, a few remnant patches of original forest persist on inaccessible slopes of hills in and around the basin, but agricultural and urban landscapes prevail. The influence of land use/cover on soil temperature was investigated at Liptovská Teplička cadastre study site in May where 10 measurements in depth of 5 and 25 cm at four different land‐use plots (AL, arable land; M, meadow; AG, abandoned grasslands; FL, forest land) were done by insert soil thermometer.

The highest mean soil.Two agricultural regions stood out, the Peanut Basin of Senegal and the Grain Belt of northern Nigeria, whose landscapes were almost totally devoted to cropland. Fueled by high demographic growth — population grew fromtoinhabitants in 38 years — and a growing demand for food, agricultural expansion accounts for the.
