The study of the nature of land use and land cover, their changes over space and time, and the processes that produce these patterns and changes can be termed 'land use science'. Land use science is necessarily an interdisciplinary science since land uses are influenced by, and influence, environmental, ecological, social and economic systems through a complex series of natural and socio-economic processes, including management and decision making. Land use science, therefore, adopts an integrated approach that couples natural and human systems and fosters interdisciplinary collaboration between social, economic, behavioural, environmental, ecological, biological and atmospheric scientists. Land use scientists must also draw on a broad range of interdisciplinary scientific methodologies and enabling technologies.
