Estimation of tropical forest extent and regenerative stage using remotely sensed data


Journal of Biogeography 21(3): 223-244
Estimation of tropical forest extent and regenerative stage using remotely sensed data
Deforestation in the tropics is a major source of atmospheric CO2 and regeneration of these forests is a major sink of CO2. The role is reviewed of remote sensing in studies of tropical deforestation and regeneration.
