Globally, agriculture is the greatest threat to biodiversity and a major contributor to anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Both pressures will increase over coming decades as populations and per capita consumption increase. How we choose to produce food will, to a large extent, determine the state of biodiversity and the wider environment in the 21st Century. My research examines different potential land-use strategies in Yucat√°n, Mexico, to identify landscapes that minimise biodiversity loss and maximise carbon storage, whilst meeting current and future food demands.
