    An evaluation the transformation of vegetation that occurred between 1974 and 2000, at river Pilon sub-basin was evaluated through satellite imagery (Landsat MSS and ETM). Interpretation was disregardad into two physiographic provinces and was supervised using digital maps of vegetation and field check. The types of vegetation were mapped and measured in both images in order to compare them. At the coast plains, the most affected communities lost quite much surface: torn scrub (86 %), mesquite scrub (73 %) and sub mountain scrub (32 %). Agricultural lands advanced notoriously over scrubs. At the Sierra Madre, sub mountain scrub lost 73 %, oak forest 43 % and fir forests 35 %. These changes could be related to social and economical dynamics of studied regions.

    Keyworks: forests lost, land use, remote sensing, northeast Mexico.
