Gunung Merbabu National Park is among the newest National Park in Indonesia which officially established in 2004, according to Ministry of Forestry Decree 135/Kpts-II/2004.The latest research conducted by Forestry Research Center indicates that the forest cover of Gunung Merbabu National Park now is only 30 % of the whole area of the National Park. Any activities, such as fuel wood collecting and illegal cutting for charcoal combined with forest fire as natural event, has lead to forest cover loss in Gunung Merbabu National Park. However, the process of land cover change and the area that is at risk of being deforested is still poorly understood. This study aims to use of remote sensed data to detect the forest cover change using change detection method over the period 1991-2007 and to define areas vulnerable to deforestation.
South Africa is renowned for its wildlife and environmental conservation in iconic national parks such as the Kruger, one of the world's first formal protected areas. However, this is the first book to thoroughly analyse and explain the interesting and changing scientific research that has been accomplished in South Africa's national parks during the twentieth century. Providing a fascinating and thorough historical narrative based on an extensive range of sources, this text details the evolution of traditional natural history pursuits to modern conservation science in South Africa, covering all research areas of conservation biology and all the national parks around the country. It reveals the interaction between the international context, government, learning institutions and the public that has shaped the present conservation arena. A complex story that will interest and inform not only those involved in conservation science of South Africa, but worldwide.
