Tropical forest habitat continues to decline globally, with serious negative consequences for environmental sustainability (Rudel2005). Perhaps as a consequence, studies of land cover change have long been dominated by discussions of deforestation. Most studies on land cover change have been focused on deforestation occurring in different countries, monitored by national level databases such as FAO, regional studies of deforestation in hotspots of deforestation such as the Amazon and Southeast Asia, national level studies and even smaller case studies of specific landscapes (Cropper et al. 2001 ; Seidl et al. 2001; Messina et al. 2006; Kao and Iida 2006).Yet in recent times there has been a growing awareness in the land usefland cover change research comnlunity, and amongst landscape ecologists, of the need to move away from the dominant focus on deforestation to examine the patterns and processes associated with reforesting landscapes (Rudel2005).
