Extended Data Figure 6 : The effect of border deforestation on fragmentation dynamics.

From: Global patterns of tropical forest fragmentation

Extended Data Figure 6

a, Critical points and b, fitted power-law exponents of fragment sizes for different probabilities (dborder) of deforestation restricted to the border of forest fragments (FRAG-B model for landscape size of Cmax = 106 cells). Each point in b represents one power-law fit based on n = 29,788 (dborder = 0) to n = 1,278 (dborder = 1.0) fragments (see Methods for detailed values). Calculated R2 values of fits are approximately 1 for the entire range of dborder probabilities (see Methods).
