Global Changes of Net Primary Productivity, Affected by Climate and Abrupt Land Use Changes Since 1981
This study investigates the global changes in net primary productivity (NPP) from 1981 to the present, with a particular focus on the impacts of climate variations and abrupt land use changes. Utilizing comprehensive datasets and advanced analytical techniques, the research assesses how NPP has been influenced by climatic factors such as temperature and precipitation, as well as by shifts in land use patterns. The findings reveal significant fluctuations in NPP over the study period, driven by climate variability and human-induced land use changes. Understanding these complex interactions between climate, land use, and NPP is crucial for informing sustainable land management practices and addressing global environmental challenges.
