The purpose of ALUAM-AB is to understand agricultural land-use changes triggered by
market and policy changes considering individual preferences of the farmers. The
consequences of changes in prices and policy measures relating to agricultural land-use
activities can be simulated. With respect to the respective study area, spatially explicit
information on agricultural activities (spatially explicit grassland and forest yields) allows for
a viable linkage with the ecological model WoodPaM (Peringer et al. 2012). Subsequently the the impact of farmers decision on the provision of different ecosystem services is assessed.
