  • This document reports the strategy and findings of an assessment of landcover distubance for the entire continent. The assessment had two objectives: to use contemporary (1990-1992) satellite image data to map the type, severtiy and extent of landcover disturbance; and to integrate these data with existing understanding to explore the implications of the landcover disturbance for biotic impoverishment, the loss of biodiversity
