The biggest drive to move people came at the beginning of the 1980s when more than 60,000 families were being moved each year at an estimated cost of US$10,000 per family. By 1987, the pace of transmigration slowed to around 10,000 families a year, as the programme ran out of money and as the Indonesian government became more sensitive to the problems transmigrants were experien- cing when they were often settled on land that couldn't support them The National Geographic Magazine January, 1959 (CXV).
Large parts of the total volume and stem volume variations were explained by the models (Pseudo-R2 ranged from 0.85 to 0.93) and they performed relatively well over different size classes. When considering the challenges in height measurements in rainforests, we in general recommend applying model 3 with dbh only as independent variable download National Geographic Magazine, July - December, 1928, Vol. 54 pdf. Unfortunately, deforestation is a serious threat to the Amazon forests. The mean annual deforestation rate from 2000 to 2005 (22,392 km2 per year) was 18% higher than in the previous five years (19,018 km2 per year). At the current rate, in two decades the Amazon Rain forest will be reduced by 40% Introduction to Forest and Shade Tree Insects
. But other languages keep more vowels and open sounds. And that variability might be because they evolved in different habitats.

. Fires initiated in pasturelands of the Paragominas region therefore set back forest recovery processes and drive the replacement of mature, species rich forest with forests of smaller stature, dominated by sprouting trees and lianas (Figure 2). In the likely event that semi-permanent, abandoned pastures expand in eastern Amazonia, it will become necessary for humans to facilitate forest regrowth in these highly flammable ecosystems if we hope to reduce the incidence of fire and the resulting degradation of the region's forests LIFE Magazine - November 3, 1961 -- Cover: Red Arrow Division
