Future urbanization will also have important effects on food systems. Urban expansion, coupled with unsustainable land management practices and climate change, will likely continue to lead to loss of agricultural land (Godfray et al.

).Cited by: The U.S. food system (described in Chapter 2) is widely recognized to have direct and indirect effects on the environment.
