"March is a month of considerable frustration - it is so near spring and yet across a great deal of the country the weather is still so violent and changeable that outdoor activity seems light years away."

    @Science24, I'm handicapped by my tablet, so I can't see the picture. I thought google maps can show fairly clearly where there's forest and where there are buildings. I suppose the key is to be able to compare over time, the changes in landuse. In some areas, forests are making a bit of a come back in Nepal. Someone from WWF showed me how in the Terai of Nepal (the plains on the border with India), there's been an increase in land under forest in the past few years. I don't know if this is because young people in Nepal now don't want to be farmers, but increasinly land is going back to nature as the young men leave the villages to find work in the cities or out of the country.
