Caption: Deforestation in Ecuador. Aerial view over a deforested area which has been cleared of cloudforest and burnt, and is subsequently being used for agriculture. Burnt plots of land are visible in the foreground. At centre right, the soil has been eroded by streams to form deep gullies. Soil erosion is a major problem after forest clearance because no tree roots remain to bind the earth together.
