Long-term Population Dynamics and Land-use Transitions in a Mediterranean Country: a Data Mining Approach
This study investigates long-term population dynamics (1862-2009) in the light of forest transition theory with the aim to verify the temporal coherence of demographic and land-use transformations at the country scale in Italy. An exploratory analysis of socio-environmental indicators is proposed using principal component analysis and hierarchical clustering. Results of the analysis identify four time intervals (1862-1891, 1892-1930, 1931-1976, 1977-2009) with homogeneous characteristics in both population and land-use attributes. These time intervals represent conditions of dynamic equilibrium between the environment and the local socioeconomic context, and highlight latent transitions in both population and land-use variables.
Regarding indexing issue:
We have provided the online access of all issues & papers to the all indexing agencies (as given on our journal home web site). It’s depend on indexing agencies when, how and what manner they can index or not. So, please neither sends any question nor expects any answer from us on the behalf of third party i.e. indexing agencies. Our role is just to provide the online access to them.
