Review of EO Methods for Detecting and Measuring Forest Change in the Tropics

The woody vegetation of the tropics is highly diverse in its species composition and structure, and is changing fast.

This change is a result of human actions (for example felling trees, setting fires, and damming rivers), recovery from past disturbance, and climate change.

This document provides an introduction to the different types of Earth Observation (EO) data, and the different ways in which they can be used to map forests and forest change.
