Robert Nasi, the Director General of the Centre for International Forestry Research writes in an article published on The Conversation that African forests, like many others, are threatened by over-exploitation, conversion to other land uses and climate change. Many, he warns, will likely disappear or be degraded to such an extent as to pass tipping points and become something else, something less.
