Dr. Roger Funk studies the effects of raised soil dust on our environment. In his latest project, he reaches high up into the sky and explores its effect on cloud formation. // Lupins, peas, beans and CO. are cultivated on no more than 1.7 percent of Europe’s arable land. ZALF researchers are determined to change this because these plants supply valuable protein and reduce greenhouse gases. // Each year in spring, dust storms sweep across ‘Inner Mongolia’ in northern China carrying enormous amounts of dust particles over thousands of miles. A joint German-Chinese project has analysed the causes and effects. // Local initiatives all over the world are working to protect the environment. A team of researchers has looked into particularly succesful projects in Latin America and is helping to transfer their solutions to other regions.

The mission of the

The mission of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) is to explain causal relationships in agricultural landscapes and to provide society with sound information for the sustainable use of these landscapes through excellent interdisciplinary research. The research expertise is focused on three core topics. LANDSCAPE FUNCTIONING The focus of Core Topic I »Landscape Functioning« lies on studying natural-scientific basics in order to improve the understanding of relevant processes and interdependencies on the landscape scale.

With explicit consideration of the diverse feedback mechanisms, occuring in agricultural landscapes at various spatial and temporal scales, useful effects are identified and their transition into agricultural practice prepared. LAND USE CONFLICTS AND GOVERNANCE Core Topic III »Land Use Conflicts and Governance« analyzes the preferences of various land users and the resulting land-use conflicts. The research looks at what instruments and institutions are required to achieve sustainable and conflict reducing land use. 36
