Dr. Bill Laurance, ATBC long time member, published a commentary this week at the Journal Forests about Sustainable Development and Conservation in Borneo. You can download the entire commentary at:

The Figure 1 on his commentary (below) shows a very impressive image of the island of Borneo. Areas in pink have had high rates of native-forest loss (2000–2015), areas in red are oil palm or wood-pulp plantations (2015), and areas in green have high aboveground biomass of native trees (image and data from Global Forest Watch).
