STIRPAT Bibliography

These are research papers that use either STIRPAT or a similar formulation to analyze the anthropogenic driving forces of environmental change. We have included only papers in the peer reviewed literature where the text and/or abstract are in English. Our apologies to the authors of non-English research contributions.
