Landscape Ecology 30:871–885

In a case study in the Netherlands two scenarios of changes in climate, technology, policy, and markets for 2050 are investigated: a ‘global economy’ and a ‘regional communities’ scenario; the first leads to a strong increase in agricultural production, the second to a modest increase in agricultural production and a larger expansion of the nature reserves, with the N losses and deposition remaining at the current level. Nature protection needs more ambitious green policies.
