Article
Although rice cultivation is one of the most important agricultural sources of methane (CH4) and contributes ∼8% of total global anthropogenic emissions, large discrepancies remain among estimates of global CH4 emissions from rice cultivation (ranging from 18 to 115 Tg CH4 yr⁻¹) due to a lack of observational constraints. The spatial distribution o...

Agricultural irrigation, as an important practice to protect crops from drought and promote grain yield, has a long history in China. A timely and precise dataset about the extent and dynamics of irrigated areas is necessary for water allocation and agricultural management but is scarce in China. Here we developed annual irrigated cropland maps acr...
Article
Protected areas (PAs) have been considered as an effective measure of ecological conservation. Existing studies have shown that developing countries are faced with more ecological pressure than developed countries, and suggested the priority for strengthening ecological conservation in developing countries, but the rationality of designation and co...
Article
