Table 2 Coefficients of the pixel-based forest gain model.

Maximum likelihood estimates of the coefficients of the predictor variables obtained in a logistic regression model to assess the probability of forest gain during the 2000–2010 period. See Materials and Methods for details on the logistic regression models developed in the study.
