*Yukio HIMIYAMA1 (1.Hokkaido University of Education)

Keywords:Future Earth, land use, global change research

Land use study is widely and deeply related with diverse range of missions of Future Earth. In another words, its success is vitally important for the success of Future Earth, which is a new international framework of global change research. However, land use, which can be seen as a reflection of society, nature and their interaction on the land, is difficult to grasp without truly integrative and historical views. The present paper discusses priority themes and desirable directions of land use studies under the framework of Future Earth.
