Image Caption: Forest preserve, Southern Brazil/Argentina/Paraguay

This SW-looking oblique shows the sharp boundary between the remaining
natural vegetation (forest) mainly in what is a remote corner of
northernmost Argentina. This compares with the complete removal of
forest on the Brazilian side (foreground) where all land has been
brought under the plow. Smoke can be seen from numerous fires in
Paraguay where forest clearing is intermediate between the Argentine
and Brazilian situations.
