a Across-species median range loss against the cumulative global agricultural and urban area. Uncertainty bands are based on the uncertainty of the land-use reconstruction. b Local time of the highest rate of conversion to agricultural and urban land up until 2010. c Mean potential natural range size of species locally present for the natural biome distribution in 1850 and no anthropogenic land use.
