Los bosques tropicales juegan un papel clave en la conservación de la biodiversidad, la regulación hidrológica, el clima regional y global, y son vitales para el sustento de sus habitantes. Sin embargo, la extensión actual y la intensidad de los cambios de usos del suelo y de cobertura en los bosques tropicales están propiciando su pérdida, fragmentación y degradación a un ritmo alarmante. [...]
Tropical forests play a key role in biodiversity conservation, hydrological regulation, regional and global climate, and are vital to support the livelihoods of their dwellers. Nevertheless, the current extent and intensity of land use/cover change in tropical forests is driving their loss, fragmentation, and degradation at alarming rates. [...]
