A worthwhile map of the forest cover of our planet.

However, there should be a like map for the loss of wild-life. With deforestation comes a dramatic loss of animal habitat.

Moreover, I would like to know what effects the 'thinning' of a forest has on animal life. In my area (norwestern Latvia) many forests are thinned and the brush turned into mulch from which brickettes for heating are made of. This leaves many a 'forest' with a see-through floor that can hardly be counted as a wild life hiding place.
