Abstract Results are given of a study on the changes in forest cover in Côte d'Ivoire from 1990 to 2000 based on satellite images. The changes in forest cover were investigated at 4 scales of resolution. Firstly, the total forest area in West Africa was determined. Then, the total forest cover of Côte d'Ivoire, in particular the total protected area, was analysed. Thirdly, the forest cover in the region of Abidjan was also analysed as an example for the country. Finally, forest fragmentation was investigated in detail for 8 blocks of 20×20 km in Abidjan.
