we are truly turning nature into a commodity , something that I and many others profoundly regret


here  is an article  which points the way to  a decline in wildlife including  elephants , tigers and  orangutans  due  to  deforesttion  , which in turn is partly caused by palm oil production


please  see


please  also se D Gaveeau  What a Difference 4 Decades Make: Deforestation in Borneo Since 1973,  on deforestation , forest cover has gone from 61% in 1970 to 44% in 2010


for an international comparism  please see


from high quality imaging  by region most forests have been replaced for palm oil in SE Asia ant South America  , the largest areas of vulnerable forests are in Africa and Mesoamerica


on agricultural expansion please  see  Proximate and Underlying Causes of Forest Cover Change in Peninsular Malaysia, by  M Miyamoto  and  others
