Peres, Carlos and Barlow, Jos and Laurance, William F. (2006) Detecting anthropogenic disturbance in tropical forests. Trends in Ecology and Evolution, 21 (5). pp. 227-229. ISSN 0169-5347Full text not available from this repository.
Tropical forests are beleaguered by an array of threats driven by different scales of anthropogenic perturbations, which vary in the degree to which they can be detected by remote sensing. The extent of different patterns of cryptic disturbance often far exceeds the total area deforested, as shown by two recent studies on selective logging in Amazonia. Here, we discuss different forms of disturbance in Amazonian forests and question how much of the apparently intact forest in this region remains relatively undisturbed.
