Abstract: Examination of the often contradictory estimates of the rate and extent of deforestation in Brazilian Amazonia leads to a “best estimate“of the cumulative area of forest cleared through 1988 as 345 103 km2 (including old clearings), or 8.2% of the 4 106 km2 forested portion of Brasil's 5 106 km2 “Legal Amazon“region. © 1990, Foundation for Environmental Conservation.
