Review Papers

This paper reviews and discusses the status of remote sensing techniques applied in detecting and monitoring selective logging disturbance in tropical forests. The analyses concentrated on the period 1992-2019. Accurate and precise detection of selectively logged sites in a forest is crucial for analyzing the spatial distribution of forest disturbances and degradation. Remote sensing can be used to monitor selective logging activities and associated forest fires over tropical forests, which otherwise requires labor-intensive and time-consuming field surveys, that are costly and difficult to undertake. The number of studies on remote sensing for selective logging has grown steadily over the years, thus, the need for their review so as to guide forest management practices and current research. A variety of peer reviewed articles are discussed so as to evaluate the applicability and accuracy of different methods in different circumstances. Major challenges with existing approaches are singled out and future needs are discussed.
