Clearing for farming has always been a major cause of forest destruction in the
temperate areas; the forests of Europe were largely cleared in the Middle Ages.
In North America, vast areas of temperate mixed and deciduous forests have
been cleared for farmland (Delcourt and Harris, 1980) and there are few areas of
temperate coniferous forest that have not been exploited for wood production.
Tropical deciduous forests, as we note later, have all but disappeared from much
of their ...
