Cluster C: Patterns of land use, social fabric, and consumption

General Hypotheses:

(H3) Diversity of exchange processes of goods and services is highest at intermediate stages of transition and decreases again as food systems become more efficient.

(H4) Ecological constraints and economic opportunities increase with proximity to the urban centre and make decision processes more complex.
