Figure 3: Worldwide carbon emissions due to fragmentation of tropical forests.

From: High resolution analysis of tropical forest fragmentation and its impact on the global carbon cycle

Figure 3

(a) Colours represent the estimated carbon losses for each fragment, setting edge depth d to 100 m and relative carbon losses in forest edges e to 50%. Insets illustrate exemplary regional carbon emissions for (b) tropical America (89.752 W, 13.515 N), (c) tropical Africa (17.206 E, 4.499 S) and (d) tropical South-East Asia (103.898 E, 3.091 S).
