Book Description:
Deforestation is the conversion of forested areas to non-forest land for use such as arable land, pasture, urban use, logged areas, or wasteland. Generally, the removal or destruction of significant areas of forest cover has resulted in a degraded environment with reduced biodiversity. In many countries, massive deforestation is ongoing and is shaping climate and geography. This book provides leading research from around the globe in this field.
