Asian Elephants in China: Estimating Population Size and Evaluating Habitat Suitability
On a national scale, almost all of the forested areas in Viet Nam are located along the international borders with Laos and Cambodia, although some forested areas remain in various remote and inaccessible areas, such as in the far north and northwest. In lowland areas, human impacts, especially the conversion to industrial tree plantations, agricultural land, and human settlements have rapidly devastated and continue to devastate many forests. Moreover, logging, the exploitation of forest products and hunting are also adversely impacting the quality of the remaining forests.
