a Map of peatland use showing the three main land use classes found in peatland areas in the region: uncultivated, oil palm and pulp plantations; and changes in area of oil palm plantation on peatland in b Peninsular Malaysia, c East Malaysia (Sarawak and Sabah), d Kalimantan, Indonesia, e Sumatra, Indonesia and f Brunei from 1990 to 2015. Note, pulp wood plantation, quite common in Sumatra though not elsewhere in the region, is incorporated into the ‘other peatland’ category in graphs b to f. Data source: Miettinen et al.4 and J.
