DescriptionThis Website presents Maps of the Global Distribution of original and remaining forest cover. About half of the forest that was present under modern (i.e. post-Pleistocene) climatic conditions, and before the spread of human influence, has disappeared, largely through the impact of man's activities. The causes and timing of forest loss differ between regions and forest types, as do the current trends in change in forest cover. Details of the use of the different categories of forest used in these sources can be obtained from UNEP-WCMC.
