                 results in altered land-use systems and surface
                 features, defines the environmental and socioeconomic
                 sustainability of communities around the globe. It is a
                 key response to global environmental change in addition
                 to being both a key cause and medium of this change.
                 This article examines an application of the Southern
                 Yucatan Peninsular Region Integrated Assessment
                 (SYPRIA), a scenario-based spatially explicit model
                 designed to examine and project land use in Mexico.
                 SYPRIA combines Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
                 with agent-based modelling, cellular modeling, and
                 genetic programming. The application examined here
                 explores the effects on land-use and land-cover
                 projections of scenarios that rely on varying
                 assumptions pertaining to population growth, land-use
                 trends, role of agrarian technology, and effects of
                 resource institutions. This work also highlights the
                 importance of understanding the many factors
                 influencing land use, particularly population,
                 different production systems, and the contextual nature
                 of resource institutions in determining the nature of
                 land use.",
