Philip Curtis '10 BA (Geo) article on forest loss published in Science

"Classifying drivers of global forest loss," co-authored by Philip Curtis '10 BA (Geog), was published in Science magazine. Curtis et al. used high-resolution Google Earth imagery to map and classify global forest loss since 2001 and found that 27 percent of global forest loss is due to deforestation through permanent land use change for the production of commodities, including beef, soy, palm oil, and wood fiber. 09/17/18
