Tropical forested landscapes are playing an important role in context of conservation of biodiversity and mitigating climate change. However, forests are under great pressure in the tropics and land transformation is ongoing in many places from forest to agriculture. In our studyarea in Jambi Province, Sumatra, Indonesia, this transformation is mainly the result of the expansion of tree crops. In order to the study land transformation dynamics, maps from the years 1990, 2000 and 2011 were analysed for land use/land cover (LULC) changes: the largest fransformation took place for the classes of secondary dryland forest and secondary swamp forest, which were transformed mainly inio (temporary) shrub, plantation forests, mixed dryland agriculture, estate crops and bare lands. While transformation of secondary dryland forest took place with similar areas in the periods of 1990-2000 and 2000-2011, there was a marked difference for the changes of secondary swamp forest: the transformation in 1990-2000 did leave only a relatively small area of secondary swamp forest, so that the transformed area in 2000-2011 was much smaller. In addition to the analyses of overall changes, we also looked at their spatial pattern: while aggregation went slightly down for classes secondary dryland forest and secondary swamp forest from 1990 to 2011, there are clear differences regarding number of patches: for secondary dryland forest, the number of patches increased clearly, while for secondary swamp forest it went down, indicating different processes of fragmentation for these two classes.
