                         landscapes in recent decades; however, the environmental 
                         consequences of these transformations are still poorly assessed. 
                         This paper presents a multidisciplinary approach used to assess 
                         historical land-use and land-cover (LULC) changes and their 
                         impacts on the environment in southeast Mato Grosso State, a 
                         region where the Cerrado has been intensively converted into 
                         agricultural lands. The methodology encompassed three main stages: 
                         (1) quantifying LULC changes using remote sensing data, (2) 
                         assessing LULC change impacts on vulnerable lands (e.g. erosion 
                         prone areas and wetlands), and (3) summarizing preceding 
                         information into key environmental indicators, assessed within the 
                         Pressure-State-Response framework (PSR) of the Organization for 
                         Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The results 
                         indicated a drastic landscape transformation in the selected area, 
                         which evolved from predominantly vegetated to a consolidated 
                         agricultural region. Crops expanded at high rates from 1985 to 
                         1995, occupying the majority of the lands suited for agriculture. 
                         In the following decade, crops continued to expand and encroached 
                         into fragile environments (e.g. wetlands and more erodible soils). 
                         As a result, from 1985 to 2005, the area lost approximately 42% of 
                         its natural vegetation and erosion risks increased significantly. 
                         Our integration of land-use change information with intrinsic 
                         environmental vulnerabilities allowed a deeper understanding of 
                         LULC changes consequences and provided environmental indicators. 
                         This offered a synoptic view of how LULC changes occurred and how 
                         they affected the environment at a landscape scale. Furthermore, 
                         the assessment of the indicators using the PSR framework, helped 
                         to clarify cause-effect relationships thus furnishing key 
                         information of value to decision-makers and future comparisons 
                         with other areas.",
