Forestry plantations should be regarded as an alternative sustainable land-use system in degraded savannah areas. They contribute to the maintenance of productive processes in degraded soils that are of economic importance for local inhabitants; in addition, in the ecological sense, timber and non-timber products from planted forests reduce the exploitation pressure on native forests. Eucalyptus plantations on degraded savannahs in the northern Brazilian Amazon may help to reduce exploitation pressure on native forests.

Japan's forest industry operates in mountainous regions rather than hilly areas. The forest road density is also low, and it is not easy to develop new roads and maintain them. Therefore, the work of moving about and transporting heavy loads over irregular mountain forest terrain far from roads is still hard labor performed by humans. Even today, a little technical development has been done to assist in this work.

This study attempts to confirm the differences in carbon sink according to each type of land use by using the biotope map and reviewing carbon sink considering topography, and comparing those before-and-after topographic correction. The types of carbon sink were focused on Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Net Primary Productivity (NPP).

The aim of this study was to determine some aspects of the distribution and habitat availability for the subspecies Tapirus terrestris colombianus in the low lands of the northern Central Mountain Chain in Colombia, which is known as the Antioquian Northeast. The results confirm the presence of this subspecies in 20 new recording localities. The habitat availability was estimated by locating the records on images of vegetation covertures, being primary forest the predominant vegetation followed by bushland.
