People and landscapes in different places around the world are increasingly telecoupled through flows of information, matter, energy, organisms, and various types of capital (e.g., humans, financial). Such telecouplings (socioeconomic and environmental interactions over distances) can have profound impacts on landscape patterns.

Landscapes and people in different places across the world are increasingly interconnected, both ecologically and socioeconomically. To understand and manage such complex interconnections, a new integrated framework of telecoupling is proposed ( Telecouplings are socioeconomic and ecological interactions between multiple places over distances. They occur through payment for ecosystem services, trade, water transfer, foreign investment, migration, and tourism.
