Agroecosystem as an important ecosystem type that can produce valuable ecosystem services, mainly depends on land use management practices. Agriculture is a dominant form of land use management, agroecosystems bear great disturbance from land use/cover changes resulted from agriculture activities, which will result in the degradation of ecosystem services and further decrease the ecosystem resilience. Stable ecosystem services and strong ecosystem resilience is the basis for sustainable development of agriculture production. How to valuate ecosystem services changes on spatial and temporal scale and how ecosystem services supply patterns can be used to assess the resilience of agroecosystems and then further to inform mitigation and management actions that will build ecological and social resilience to land use/cover changes is of great significance to agroecosystem management. In this study, we take the North China Plain, China's traditional and important agricultural production base with obvious land use changes as study area. We assess ecosystem service on temporal and spatial scale through mapping where ecosystem services are supplied, quantifying the likelihood of land use changes and its probable impact on ecosystem services functions and service supply, and further assess the resilience of agroecosystem in the North China Plain.
