Tree decline and the future of Australian farmland biodiversity
Farmland biodiversity is greatly enhanced by the presence of trees. However, farmland trees are decliningworldwide, including inNorth America, Central America, and parts of southern Europe. We show that tree decline and its likely consequences are particularly severe in Australia's temperate agricultural zone, which is a threatened ecoregion. Using field data on trees, remotely sensed imagery, and a demographic model for trees, we predict that by 2100, the number of trees on an average farm...[Show more]
