How the Location of Roads and Protected Areas Affects Deforestation in North Thailand

Their model suggests that protected areas (national parks,
together with wildlife sanctuaries) did not reduce the

The Role of Tropical Forests in Supporting Biodiversity and Hydrological Integrity : A Synoptic Overview

June 2012

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 assesses the relationship between forest cover and hydrology for all river basins intersecting the world's tropical forest biomes.
