Caption: Deforestation. View of part of a rain forest, showing evidence of 'slash and burn' deforestation. This is a method of clearing large areas of rain forest, converting the land into arable use or for pasture. Deforestation is a major environmental issue, affecting as it does both the carbon balance in the atmosphere and the diversity of species. Photographed in Costa Rica.
