Abstract. Land-use change and land-management practices affect a variety of ecolog-
ical processes. Land-use impacts on ecological processes include local extirpations, intro-
ductions of new species, changes in land-cover extent, changes in juxtaposition of land-
cover types, changes to disturbance regimes, changes in vegetation structure and compo-
sition, and effects on air, water, and light quality, and noise pollution. Effects of land-use
changes on ecological processes are discussed with special reference to changes in rural
