Minor Correction to "Industrial oil palm plantation (IOPP) concessions" section

Posted by kimcarlson on 14 Jan 2013 at 00:14 GMT

The proper reference to the origin of compiled Indonesian industrial oil palm plantation concession data (“Industrial oil palm plantation (IOPP) concessions”) is missing from this article. These concession data were originally compiled by Carlson, Curran et al. (2012) for publication in Nature Climate Change. Moreover, the concession boundaries were not all at the 1:250,000 scale. These minor corrections are provided below.
Original Text:
“For Indonesian Borneo (Kalimantan), maps of oil palm concession boundaries were obtained from various provincial governments at a 1:250,000 scale.”
Corrected Text and Reference:
“For Indonesian Borneo (Kalimantan), maps of oil palm concession boundaries were obtained from various provincial governments (Carlson et al. 2012).”
