Cause for concern-Commodities for export still threaten rainforests in Brazil_ Correspondence in the leading Science Journal Nature

The authors of correspondence to Nature find that the conclusion "that there is no longer a direct correlation between food production in Brazil and deforestation in the Amazon", published in the previous number (Nature 466, 554–556; 2010) are premature. An increase in demand by international markets for export commodities such as soya beans and beef will mean more rainforest clearance.
