Land-Use Intensification and Protected-Area Vulnerability in Africa's Albertine Rift
Joel Hartter, University of New Hampshire

Scientists will study how and where land use has intensified over time around parks in the Albertine Rift of eastern Africa by quantifying the rate and extent of forest conversion around seven Ugandan parks. Through this information, the researchers will identify patterns of climate, land use and population change over the last decade.
