Peter Verburg (Department Earth Sciences, FALW), worked together with researchers at Aalto University (Finland) in analysing a set of recent datasets on forest lost and found that 3% of the protected forest, 2.5% of the all intact forest, and 1.5% of the protected intact forest in the world were lost during 2000 – 2012. These rates of forest loss are high compared to the total global forest loss of 5% for the same time period.
