Rebound effects in agricultural land and soil management: Review and analytical framework

Improving the efficiency of resource-use is a central topic in agricultural research with strong implications for global food provision and the protection of natural habitats and resources. However, higher efficiencies may cause so called "rebound effects" that offset part or all of the potential resource savings. This paper is the first to systematically review the state of knowledge on rebound effects in agriculture and to present a framework for their assessment.
