Abstract

Could old colonization zones in the urbanizing and industrializing countries of Latin America become sites for a tropical forest transition in which reforestation becomes more prevalent than deforestation ? The AA. try to answer this question through a case study of land-use change and migration since 1985 in a long-settled region of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Data reveal two disparate patterns of reforestation in the region, one on peripheral lands far from roads and the other on lands close to roads. Tropical forest transitions may differ from earlier temperate forest transitions in that reforestation does not signify land abandonment
