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.
