Although the research of Land Use/Cover Change (LUCC) involves many scientific issues, there exist some inherent relations. Based on the analysis to the fundamental goal of the LUCC Plan, the author points out that the essential relationship among those issues is causality. According to this relation, the research on LUCC can be simply divided into three components: reasons of LUCC, states of LUCC and results of LUCC, and four research aspects: drivers and mechanisms of LUCC, states of LUCC, effects and processes of LUCC and models and simulations of LUCC. After reviewing the current research situation of LUCC, this paper also puts forth several prospects on its future development: the whole trend will be synthesis, the environmental effect and the micro mechanism of LUCC are still the research hotspots, and the synthesis of scales and the establish of models will be the research difficulties.
