..."...Le saccage des forêts primaires d'Afrique centrale est infiniment plus rapide et accompli que ne l'avouent les discours officiels des gouvernements africains et de leurs bailleurs de fonds occidentaux. Sous la pression des mouvements écologistes, des réglementations censées garantir la préservation des forêts ont été élaborées. Or, ni ces réglementations ni les codes de conduite ne semblent freiner les mauvaises pratiques..."

Google Highlights Global Deforestation with Interactive Map | Save and Protect the Rainforests | Scoop.it

Google earth has partnered with a research team at the University of Maryland in the realization of an interactive, digital map that highlights global deforestation.

The data used has been compiled from the results of a decade long analysis of 654,178 landsat images. each color indication on the interface corresponds to collected informational evidence: red -- forest loss from 2000-2012; blue -- forest gain from 2000-2012; magenta -- both loss and gain; green -- forest extent.

Christian Allié's curator insight, July 23, 2013 10:02 AM

........"Les forêts tropicales constituent le poumon vert de l’Afrique et présentent une combinaison unique d’interactions écologiques, climatiques et humaines. Dans cet article de synthèse, nous passons en revue les processus de changement d’état passés et présents des forêts tropicales africaines, et explorons les défis et les opportunités pour un maintien viable de ces biomes dans le futur. Nous attirons particulièrement l’attention sur les idées et les nouvelles analyses émergeant du numéro thématique "Forêts tropicales africaines: passé, présent et futur" du Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. Une combinaison de caractéristiques permet de décrire le biome des forêts tropicales africaines, incluant: l’histoire des variations climatiques, des expansions et des diminuations de forêt, une longue histoire d’interaction de l’Homme avec le biome, une diversité d’espèces végétales relativement faible mais une biomasse importante, une biomasse animale historiquement exceptionnellement élevée qui se trouve maintenant fortement chassée, la domination d’une exploitation forestière sélective, une agriculture à petite échelle et une exploitation de la viande de brousse comme les principales formes de pressions humaines. Récemment, en Afrique Centrale, il faut aussi considérer le contexte particulier des économies soutenues par le pétrole et les minerais qui ont entrainé des taux anormalement bas de déforestation et d’activité agricole. Nous concluons en expliquant comment cette combinaison de facteurs influe sur les perspectives pour les forêts d'Afrique pour le XXIe siècle. "
