Air photographs for 1965, 1981, and 1992, semistructured interviews and other methods are used to assess changes in land cover, land-tenure, and market structure. Authors found that new nature reserve increased forest cover, but also placed more pressure on remaining land, leading to land degradation. Growth in market for cash crops has led to more sustainable land use practices, but has been associated with various dire consequences for the ordinary villager. - (SLD)
