Table 2 Areas (in million hectares) of undisturbed and degraded TMFs for the years 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, and 2020 (on 1 January) by subregion and continent and relative decline (in percentage) over intervals of 30 years (1990–2019) and 10 years (1990–1999, 2000–2009, and 2010–2019).

The values appearing in italic indicate those derived from an average percentage of invalid pixel observations over the baseline TMF domain (Table 11) higher than 40%.
