Abstract: Chapter 7 is specifically devoted to the case of forest resources and deforestation, considering the specificities of forestry statistics (in view of factors such as permanence of stands from year to year, the plot sizes being far greater than pixel sizes, the need for long-term management, and the availability of management registers in non-natural forests). The main approaches for using remote sensing in forest cover assessment and evolution are reviewed, with particular emphasis on the specificities and results identified in the recent literature.
