  • Deforestation and the uses of wood in the Ecuadorian Andes
  • Andes ; Charcoal ; Deforestation ; Domestic use ; Ecuador ; Firewood ; Land use ; Living standard ; Mountain ; Rural economy ; Wood
  • Wood use is examined in four study areas in highland Ecuador in terms of its importance for the rural economy and its relation to deforestation. Concludes that the need for firewood does not explain deforestation; rather it responds to the demand

  • Deforestation and regrowth in Miombo woodland, SW Tanzania
  • Cultivated plants ; Deforestation ; LANDSAT ; Land use ; MSS ; Reforestation ; Remote sensing ; Tanzania ; Tobacco
  • Deforestation is a general problem in Tanzania. One of the major reasons is tobacco farming. The study area is the major tobacco producing area in Mbeya Region, Chunya district. A procedure has been made for estimating deforestation and regrowth
  • Observations on deforestation and alpine turf destruction in the Central Wutai Mountains, Shanxi Province, China
  • China ; Deforestation ; Holocene ; Land use ; Mountain ; Pastureland ; Shanxi ; Soil erosion
  • Wutai Shan, a Buddhist pilgrimage site since the 5th century, has a long history of extensive deforestation and intensive land use. By the end of the 19th century, the mountains had become widely deforested. Radiocarbon dates on wood and charcoal
  • Tropical deforestation and forest management under the system of concession logging: a decision-theoretic analysis
  • Behaviour ; Cost-benefit analysis ; Decision ; Deforestation ; Forest ; Forest policy ; Forest resources ; Logging ; Markov chain ; Resource management ; Tropical rain forest
  • Deforestation caused by concession logging is often the result of harvest decisions which focus on short-run profits. A sequential-decision model is developed which focuses on a logger's annual decisions of whether or not remain in compliance
  • with the terms of a concession contract. Noncompliance is taken to result in deforestation. An optmal decision policy is employed to construct payoff incentives which encourage compliance.
  • Beyond deforestation : the social context of forest change in two indigenous communities in Highland Mexico
  • Aerial photography ; Community ; Deforestation ; Environmental degradation ; Forest ; Fuelwood ; Mexico ; Michoacán ; Rural society ; Vegetation dynamics
  • Using participant observation, aerial photographs, and forest inventories, A. analyzes the social context of forest change in two neighboring indigenous communities in the Lake Patzcuaro Basin in west-central Mexico. Although deforestation
  • statistics and fuelwood demand suggest severe environmental degradation, there was an increase in tree cover, due to farm abondonment, and an increase in oak dominance. A. cautions against presuming there is widespread deforestation over the Mexican

  • L'influence de la déforestation sur le climat moyen serait un peu moindre qu'on ne l'imaginait, sauf en ce qui concerne l'élévation des températures maximales en saison sèche et la diminution de l'activité convective, particulièrement sur l'Amazonie
  • méridionale et l'ouest de l'Afrique équatoriale. Mais la déforestation accroît fortement la variabilité du climat sur la courte période. - (JPB)
  • Tropical deforestation and climate change
  • Atmosphere ; Climatic variation ; Climatic warming ; Deforestation ; Energy balance ; Global change ; Impact ; Land atmosphere interaction ; Model ; Tropical rain forest ; Vegetation
  • This article reviews the physical links between tropical rain forests and the atmosphere, and considers the results of studies which address the climatic impacts of deforestation. There is a growing consensus that deforestation leads to warmer
  • , there is considerable uncertainty associated with the local and regional impacts of deforestation on the climate.
