dc.descriptionThis study combines the best available data on carbon stocks and deforestation with protected area data to estimate the area of forest loss within the protected area network of the humid tropical forest biome during 2000-2005. Carbon emissions resulting from deforestation are estimated according to four scenarios of land use following clearance
dc.descriptionranging from complete loss of biomass to pasture, crop, or oil palm development on a regional basis. Regions where protected areas are simultaneously rich in carbon and under pressure from land cover change are identified.
