      From to , deforestation in the Amazon frontier state of Mato Grosso decreased to 30% of its historical average (–) whereas agricultural production reached an all-time high. This study combines satellite data with government deforestation and production statistics to assess land-use transitions and potential market and policy drivers associated with these ://   Given that conversion efficiency of plant to animal matter conversion is in the region of 10% (Godfray et al., ), and that about a third of the world’s cereal production is fed to animals, a reduction in the livestock product consumption could greatly reduce the need for sustainable intensification, through reduced ://

–   Declining mobility levels since the Terminal Pleistocene contributed to fundamental changes in demography, health and disease, and social organization among many human populations (1 –6).The Neolithic Demographic Transition, characterized by increased fertility, population size, and density, may be partially attributable to decreased energy expenditure associated with greater sedentism (2, 7).

Horses are considered livestock in the United :// Total meat production in the developing world tripled between andfrom 45 to million tons (World Bank ).

Much of this growth was concentrated in countries that experienced rapid economic growth, particularly in East Asia, and revolved around poultry and :// Sustainable intensification not only improves the productivity of tropical forage-based systems but also reduces the ecological footprint of livestock production and generates a diversity of   As is the case with animal domestication in the Near East, the leading edge of plant domestication in the region is now recognized as an extended process (24, 25).

Evidence from multiple locations point to a prolonged period of human manipulation of morphologically wild, but possibly cultivated, plants which, in certain species, resulted in the The East Asia region is home to more than half the world s stock of pigs and more than one-third of the world s poultry a population that is expected to grow rapidly over the next decades.

As a result, about 26 percent of the total area in East Asia suffers from significant nutrient surpluses, mainly Because food sovereignty should be a target for each country, an increase in animal productivity can be an objective; however, this is often difficult to achieve because of environmental, social, and economic constraints.

For the same region, total water uses for beef depend greatly on the production :// Theoretical Framework. TAC states that processes in human and environmental systems are interlinked at different spatial/temporal scales of operation and modeled as adaptive cycles (12 ⇓ –14).The cycles move dynamically through four phases (r, K, Ω, and α); r-phase is defined as growth or exploitation, with trends to cultural conservatism and eventual high interconnectivity of the   Domestication, from the Latin domesticus, 'belonging to the house', is "a sustained multi-generational, mutualistic relationship in which one organism assumes a significant degree of influence over the reproduction and care of another organism in order to secure a more predictable supply of a resource of interest, and through which the partner organism gains advantage over individuals that The production of animal calories requires a substantial volume of plant calories, water, and energy.

In addition, breeding ruminants generates greenhouse gases directly or indirectly (e.g., through animal fodder, processing, and transport).

This last component is increasing with the intensification of ://. Animal manures are a valuable source of nutrients for crops and grasslands. However, global intensification of animal production concentrates manure within smaller areas, creating nutrient hot spots.

In contrast, nutrient deficits often develop in areas with limited animal production that could benefit from manure ://The past decade has witnessed a quantum leap in our understanding of the origins, diffusion, and impact of early agriculture in the Mediterranean Basin.

In large measure these advances are attributable to new methods for documenting domestication in plants and animals.
