About this book

Analyzes datasets at the global, national, and subnational levels, and draws on published and unpublished scientific studies. It develops selected indicators that describe the condition of the world's forests, where condition is defined as the current and future capacity of forests to provide the full range of goods and services that humans need and consume. It shows that forest areas in developed countries continue to increase slightly, while clearance for agriculture, development, and logging in developing countries is reducing their forests by at least 140,000 square kilometers every year.
