Biodiversity in rangelands is decreasing, due to intense utilization
for livestock production and conversion of rangeland into cropland;
yet the outlook of rangeland biodiversity has not been
considered in view of future global demand for food. Here we
assess the impact of future livestock production on the global
rangelands area and their biodiversity. First we formalized existing

Implementation of land management policies influences land use and hence
causes environmental change. Taking the Ordos rangelands in China as a case
study, this paper explores the potential of remote sensing to assess in dryland
areas the impacts of policies on the environment. Thirteen Landsat images of the
period 1978 2010 were acquired and those corresponding to the starting dates of
implementation of different policies were selected for land-cover change analysis;
others were used to check the detected change and track the normalized
