Patch of jungle that has been slash-and-burned in Borneo (Kalimantan, Borneo (Indonesian Borneo))
Patch of jungle that has been slash-and-burned in Borneo. This section of forest was cut months past but the farmers missed their window for converting the land for agriculture. Rains came before the fallen vegetation had been thoroughly burned and thus, this land cannot be used for crops until the forest regrows and is slash-and-burned again. In its current state most nutrients have already been leached by the strong tropical sun and rain has washed away valuable soils.

Bamboo stakes placed to control water hyacinth at Lake Tempe. These bamboo tripods form bungkas, large man-made circles of floating vegetation. These serve as fish traps, attracting fish during the rainy seaons. As water levels drop towards the dry season, a fine bamboo fence is built around the bungka, trapping the fish.
