"At the height of a hundred feet the hills were buried in a dense white vapour, which rose like columns of smoke from the most thickly-wooded parts.. . ." Forest degradation has been described using variables such as changes in canopy and understory tree density, plant or animal species richness, and/or carbon stocks as measured against a baseline from apparently undisturbed conditions (Lambin 1999, Devi and Behera 2003, Harrison 2011).
