Extended Data Figure 8 : Dynamics of fragment numbers comparing implicit and explicit modelling of reforestation.

From: Global patterns of tropical forest fragmentation

Extended Data Figure 8

a, We assume a gross deforestation rate of d = 0.51% per year and a reforestation rate of r = 0.14% per year for the Americas1 (with random and independent selection of sites for deforestation and reforestation, blue dots). This model version is equivalent to the original FRAG model assuming a net deforestation rate of dnet = 0.37% per year (green line). b, The same scenario (green line as in a), but now explicit reforestation occurs exclusively at the border of forest fragments (blue dots).
