Tropical deforestation has many consequences, amongst which alteration of the hydrological cycle and loss of habitat and biodiversity are the focus of much public interest and scientific research. Here we examine the potential biodiversity and hydrological impacts of an extreme deforestation scenario – the loss of all tropical forest areas currentl...

ASB’s assessment, ‘Forest and Agroecosystem Tradeoffs in the Humid Tropics’ (known as ‘Tropical Forest Margins'), is the only crosscutting sub-global assessment approved by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA). Focusing on ecoregions nested within the humid tropical broadleaf forest biome, the aim is to conduct an assessment covering the ecoreg...
Article
Conservation of high-biodiversity tropical forests is sometimes justified on the basis of assumed hydrological benefits - in particular, the reduction of flooding hazards for downstream floodplain populations. However, the"far-field"link between deforestation and distant flooding has been difficult to demonstrate empirically. This simulation study...
Article
Two increasingly shared perspectives within the international development community are that (a) geography matters, and (b) many government interventions would be more successful if they were better targeted. This paper unites these two notions by exploring the opportunities for, and benefits of, bringing an explicitly spatial dimension to the task...

Article
Cultivated land has been feeding the world for thousands of years. Only in the last few decades, remote sensing is used to assess and monitor the extent and status of cultivated land. One of the greatest challenges when working with existing land cover datasets is the lack of consistent and reliable data on the location and area intensity of cultiv...
