Caption: Deforestation, satellite image. Fields (geometric shapes, yellow/white/red) have been cleared from the dense surrounding forest (dark green). A river runs down centre. This area forms a small part of the west-central state of Mato Grosso, Brazil. The state is reputed to hide lost tribes and vanished civilizations in its vast and dense rainforests. Large areas remain undeveloped. There is concern at the environmental impact of clearing rainforest for agriculture and settlements. Image taken by NASA's Terra satellite in July 2002.
