Land use types that replaced forest in the Leuser Ecosystem during 1985-2007
Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The main driver for forest loss on peat areas in the Leuser Ecosystem was oil palm development between 1985 and 2007, while for forest on non-peatlands other land uses than oil palm contributed more to land use changes.
