Forest Clearing in Gunung Palung National Park

Forest Clearing in Gunung Palung National Park

Cumulative forest loss within the Gunung Palung National Park boundary (yellow line), Indonesia, and its surrounding 10-km buffer, 1988–2002. Forest and non-forest classifications are based on Landsat Thematic Mapper time series. Lowland (green) and peat (olive) forests were converted to non-forest (red), first predominantly in the buffer and later within the park. Grey areas are montane forest and excluded from the analyses.
