                         located in the Par{\'a} State, eastern Brazilian Amazonia. Using 
                         MOD09 8-day composite product from 2000 to 2009 was elaborated the 
                         EVI2 spatial-temporal series of the study area. For each pixel we

                         spatial-temporal fluctuations driven by the deforestation and
