Abstract

Agro-silvo-pastoral systems were studied in central-eastern Sardinia (Italy) to assess their environmental impact in marginal Mediterranean areas. Land cover changes between 1955 and 1996 were assessed by using multitemporal aerial coverages. Starting from a past land suitability classification developed at farm level, a scheme for the evaluation of the land suitability to the creation of new pastures at regional scale was developed by using GIS methodologies. The scheme classifies the land into 5 land suitability classes as defined in the FAO Framework for Land Evaluation
