The importance of Legal Reserves for protecting the Pantanal biome and preventing agricultural losses

The aim of this paper was to generate future vegetation loss scenarios for the Pantanal, once this biome it´s one of the largest wetlands in the world and has been undergoing a rapid land use changes, at the same time that does not yet have any integrated environmental legislation on Legal Reserve for entire region (LR – minimum percentage of native vegetation required within private properties).

The scenarios of future changes in land use have the potential to support policymakers in drafting environmental laws, to reconcile the demands of multiple land uses.
