Description: The world's forests are disappearing at an alarming rate. Between 2000 and 2010 the net annual loss of the world's forests was 6.4 million ha (0.13%). While the rate of forest cover loss has slowed compared to the period of 1990-2000 (net annual loss of 8.3 million ha year-1) (FAO 2011) , it is still severe enough to warrant a concerted effort to slow or reverse this trend. This is especially true in the tropical regions, where net forest losses increased from 6.3 million ha year-1 in the 1990s to 8.0 million ha year-1 between 2000 and 2005 (FAO 2011)

Keywords: indigenous species, tropical plantation forestry
