Local deforestation patterns and driving forces in a tropical dry forest in two municipalities of southern Oaxaca, Mexico
Deforestation , clearance , clearcutting , or clearing is the removal of a forest or stand of trees from land that is then converted to non-forest use. The most concentrated deforestation occurs in tropical rainforests. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations defines deforestation as the conversion of forest to other land uses regardless of whether it is human-induced. Net change, therefore, can be positive or negative, depending on whether gains exceed losses, or vice versa. For instance, FAO estimate that the global forest carbon stock has decreased 0. In North America, the forest carbon stock increased from

Indarto, Jarot and Mutaqin, Dadang J. Deforestation is one of the critical issues in our global climate change era. It leads to two important environmental challenges, loss of biodiversity and increasing of greenhouse gas emission. Many efforts have been introduced, developed and implemented. However, a declining forest cover still presents.
As one of countries which has the large tropical forests in the world and the largest in ASEAN, Indonesia has been facing serious deforestation problems. This study tries to extend and explore the causes of deforestation in Central Kalimantan, one of Provinces in Indonesia which has been facing the highest deforestation problem caused by many factors. This study applied a qualitative approach. Data were collected by using interview and focus group discussions. The study found that as a socio political construct, deforestation in Indonesia emerges at the intersection between the biophysical changes of the politically defined forest and the political economic struggles around access and control over forestland resources by domestic and international actors. Hardly is a given issue, the term deforestation itself is still subject to debate as state definition of deforestation is continuously being challenged by the definition developed by civil society members. Deforestation, in many of its aspects, is also associated with governance failure and complex political economic settings that shape its emergence.

Deforestation is the process of cutting down trees and clearing land. Deforestation occurs for a variety of reasons. In many countries, people clear land to use it for other purposes, such as agriculture, pasture land, and urban development.

Quantifying patterns of deforestation and linking these patterns to potentially influencing variables is a key component of modelling and projecting land use change. Statistical methods based on null hypothesis testing are only partially successful for interpreting deforestation in the context of the processes that have led to their formation. Simplifications of cause-consequence relationships that are difficult to support empirically may influence environment and development policies because they suggest simple solutions to complex problems. Deforestation is a complex process driven by multiple proximate and underlying factors and a range of scales.
