Abstract

The analysis of the satellite imagery suggested that degradation of pastures were probably underestimated in the past because a considerable part of previous studies classified degrading pastures as secondary forests. Therefore, future climate and carbon models should include a more exact analysis of tree-dominanted pastures to get a more detailed picture of reality. The paper deals with Bragantina, Capoeira, Juquira, pasture degradation, bush encroachment and satellite image classification. - (IfL)
