a r t i c l e i n f o Keywords: Dry tropical forests Africa Miombo Woodlands Land cover change Land cover variability Spectral mixture analysis Dry tropical forests are experiencing some of the highest rates of change among the globe's forests. In sub-Saharan Africa, gross (loss, gain) and net changes in dry tropical forest areas are difficult to quantify at sub-national scales because of high spatio-temporal variability in land cover conditions due to vegetation phenol-ogy and land use… CONTINUE READING
