Abstract

Understanding vegetation increases found throughout Honduras using repeat photography is undertaken using a template of forest transition pathways. Vegetation increases were observed in a large number of repeat photograph pairs, though these increases appear in a variety of forms and settings. Using forest transition pathways to classify the changes evident in the sets of photographs illustrates that smallholder tree-based intensification is the dominant category explaining the observed changes. A variety of non-forest increases in tree cover throughout the country reflect the complex variety of processes that influence landscape transitions.
