Abstract

[Extract] We are living in one of the most dramatic eras of infrastructure expansion in human history. By 2050, an additional 25 million kilometers of paved roads are expected to crisscross the earth—enough to encircle the planet more than 600 times. In addition to the growth in road networks, work on other infrastructure projects—such as railroads, hydroelectric dams, power lines, gas lines and industrial mines—is expected to increase sharply over the next few decades (Laurance and Balmford, 2013; Laurance and Peres, 2006).
