AbstractThis paper summarizes recent assessments of impacts of various alternative land use practices currently found in the Mae Chaem watershed. Biophysical studies include impacts on plant biodiversity, carbon stocks, methane flux, stream flow and soil properties, while economic studies assess major crop production approaches and environmental concerns. These studies, conducted during 1997-2001 by researchers from ICRAF, the Royal Forest Department, Chiang Mai University and other partners working with ASB-Thailand, indicate that views of various land use practices as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ often break down on closer examination
