Caption: Villagers burn plots of forest and the slash left after clearcutting of the tropical rainforest to cultivate the soil, the practice of traditional slash and burn or milpa agriculture. They start close to their villages, then progress farther into the forest because the rainforest soil becomes exhausted quickly. Yabogengo, Oriental Province, Democratic Republic of Congo.
