Extent of deforestation in Borneo 1950-2005, and projection towards 2020
Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The tropical lowland and highland forests of Borneo, including vast expanses of rainforest, have decreased rapidly after the end of the second world war. Forests are burned, logged and clear, and commonly replaced with agricultural land, built-up areas or palm oil plantations. These areas represent habitat for species, such as Orangutan and elephants.
