      Dislich, Claudia; Keyel, Alexander C.; Salecker, Jan; Kisel, Yael; Meyer, Katrin M.; Auliya, Mark; Barnes, Andrew D.; Corre, Marife D.; Darras, Kevin; Faust, Heiko; Hess, Bastian; Klasen, Stephan; Knohl, Alexander; Kreft, Holger; Meijide, Ana; Nurdiansyah, Fuad; Otten, Fenna; Pe'er, Guy; Steinebach, Stefanie; Tarigan, Suria; Tölle, Merja H.; Tscharntke, Teja; Wiegand, Kerstin (Biological Reviews, 2016)
      Oil palm plantations have expanded rapidly in recent decades. This large-scale land-use change has had great ecological, economic, and social impacts on both the areas converted to oil palm and their surroundings. However, ...
    • Economic and ecological trade-offs of agricultural specialization at different spatial scales 

      Klasen, Stephan; Meyer, Katrin M.; Dislich, Claudia; Euler, Michael; Faust, Heiko; Gatto, Marcel; Hettig, Elisabeth; Melati, Dian N.; Jaya, I. Nengah Surati; Otten, Fenna; Pérez-Cruzado, César; Steinebach, Stefanie; Tarigan, Suria; Wiegand, Kerstin (Ecological Economics, 2016)
      Specialization in agricultural systems can lead to trade-offs between economic gains and ecosystem functions. We suggest and explore a conceptual framework in which economic gains can be maximized when production activities ...
    • Water scarcity and oil palm expansion: social views and environmental processes 

      Merten, Jennifer; Röll, Alexander; Guillaume, Thomas; Meijide, Ana; Tarigan, Suria; Agusta, Herdhata; Dislich, Claudia; Dittrich, Christoph; Faust, Heiko; Gunawan, Dodo; Hein, Jonas; Hendrayanto; Knohl, Alexander; Kuzyakov, Yakov; Wiegand, Kerstin; Hölscher, Dirk (Ecology and Society, 2016)
      Conversions of natural ecosystems, e.g., from rain forests to managed plantations, result in significant changes in the hydrological cycle including periodic water scarcity. In Indonesia, large areas of forest were lost ...
