Notes:
Non-agricultural land here includes forest, tundra, ice, desert, savannah, steppe, scrubland, and urban areas. Agricultural land is comprised of cropland, mixed cropland/pasture, marginal land, and pasture.
In contrast to agricultural land, domesticated areas are comprised of cropland, pasture, and urban areas. (See Figure 4.16.) All other areas are considered non-domesticated. Thus, there is overlap between land classified as agricultural and land classified as domesticated, but there are also differences.
