Abstract

This volume presents studies on deforestation in the Teknaf Peninsula in Bangladesh. The studies analyze the mechanisms and causes of deforestation and explore possible methods of reforestation. The peninsula once had rich forests that harbored a variety of wildlife, including large mammals such as wild boars, deer, and Asian elephants. However, deforestation, which has advanced across the peninsula, has become a critical issue. Currently, clusters of trees in this area are only found in patches of tree plantations and "social" forest plots. Natural forests harbor a very small number of trees, and most areas defined as forests are actually covered only with shrubs and bushes. Although young trees are evidence of regrowth, forests do not appear to be regenerating.
