Here lives one of the world’s four great tropical avifaunas, separate in its history and evolution from those of Asia, Africa, and . China (Chinese: 中国 ; pinyin: Zhōngguó ; literally: 'Central State'), officially the People's Republic of China (PRC ; Chinese: 中 华 人 民 共 和 国 ; pinyin: Zhōnghuá Rénmín Gònghéguó), is a country in East Asia. It is the world's most populous country, with a population of around billion in Covering approximately million square kilometres ( million mi Calling code: + montane mainland South-east Asia (1–3). More than , ha may have been converted already in the uplands of China, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Cam-bodia, and Myanmar (see the fig-ure, panel A). By , the area of land dedicated to rubber and other diversified farming systems could more than double or triple, largely by replacing lands now.

The book’s contributions are a theorization of borders in regions with multiple ethnic groups and strong patronage relations, and a conceptualization of landscape plasticity, or flexible forms of land access and use that give agency to farmers dealing with rapidly changing political economies.

The maps focus on the tropical parts of Central and South America, Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and the Southwest Pacific for two reasons: 1) These areas have the most biomass, causing land use transitions in these areas to have a particularly high impact on global carbon emissions; and 2) shifting cultivation is most widespread in these Cited by: The Sumatran tiger is the only surviving tiger population in the Sunda Islands, where the Bali and Javan tigers are extinct.

Additionally, the book contains an important look at the history of pre-WWII land use in Borneo, and the destruction that resulted from early mining and logging interests.

The book also devotes chapters to current land use practices of lowlands and settlers and contrasts those with the practices of ‘forest people’, usually defined as the. a religion, originated in India by Buddha (Gautama) and later spreading to China, Burma, Japan, Tibet, and parts of southeast Asia, holding that life is full of suffering caused by desire and that the way to end this suffering is through enlightenment that enables one to halt the endless sequence of births and deaths to which one is otherwise.

Paper presented at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting (AGU), New Orleans, USA, December Asia covers an area of 44, square kilometres (17, sq mi), about 30% of Earth's total land area and % of the Earth's total surface area. The continent, which has long been home to the majority of the human population, [6] was the site of many of the first civilizations.

Plantation rubber (Hevea brasiliensis Müll. Arg.) is a viable economic resource for Southeast Asian countries. Consequently, rubber plantations are rapidly expanding into both climatically optimal and sub-optimal environments throughout mainland Southeast Asia, potentially changing the partitioning of water, energy, and carbon at multiple scales, compared with the traditional land covers.The first named center for the study of Southeast Asia in the U.S.

was the “Southeast Asia Institute” formed in New York City in (John Bowen, “The Development of Southeast Asian Studies in the United States,” UCIAS (): 8). Most of its members were specialists in Island Southeast Asia and worked in the field of Anthropology.The lowlands of Sumatra, Java and Borneo have far fewer endemics than one would expect from their size.

This is not surprising: these islands had Pleistocene connections to mainland South‐east Asia (Heaney ). Excluding them, the log‐log fits of species to area are nearly identical for montane and lowland birds and similar for montane Cited by:
