                         degradation in Mato Grosso State, Brazil. We utilise a sample 
                         based approach used in a previous pan-tropical deforestation 
                         survey to derive information on land cover and burned areas in the 
                         two major biomes of Mato Grosso: Amazon and Cerrado. Land cover 
                         and burned area are mapped for three years (2000-2005-2010) over 
                         77 sample sites (10000ha each) distributed systematically 
                         throughout the state which covers 90.337 Mha. Our results indicate 
                         continuing forest degradation by fires in the state and 
                         potentially increasing fire susceptibility of the Amazon forests, 
                         regardless of the decrease in deforestation. 2010 witnessed the 
                         most extensive fire-induced forest degradation (\∼300000ha) 
                         in the forests of the Amazon biome among the study years, 
                         regardless of the fact that the fire season was less severe than 
                         in 2005. Deforestation in the Amazon biome in Mato Grosso dropped 
                         from 590000hayear-1 in the 2000-2005 period to 190000hayear-1 in 
                         the second half of the decade. The findings of this study advocate 
                         the inclusion of forest fire effects into carbon accounting
