    Findings from extant studies indicate that...

    Hello,

    "Findings from extant studies indicate that urbanization-driven land-use change within many coastal locations have shown to be advancing rapidly across a global scale."

    Do you think the above sentence is grammatical? It sounds a bit strange to me.

    I'd say:
    1) Findings from extant studies indicate that urbanization-driven land-use change within many coastal locations is advancing rapidly across a global scale.
    2) In extant studies, urbanization-driven land-use change within many coastal locations is shown to be advancing rapidly across a global scale.

    Whay do you say?

    Extant studies doesn't sound very natural to me:

    These sound more like current views than extant ones to me.
