Assistant Professor Christoph Nolte has published “Voluntary, permanent land protection reduces forest loss and development in a rural‐urban landscape” in the journal Conservation Letters. “Voluntary, permanent land protection is a key conservation process in many countries,” write Nolte and his colleagues, who “find that land acquisitions and conservation restrictions implemented by state, local, and nongovernmental actors reduced forest loss and conversion to developed uses without increasing either type of land‐cover change on adjacent parcels.”
