1.A new analysis of satellite images shows that on average 15,500 sq km of forest is being cut down by selective logging each year. This is [*]besides a similar amount clear-cut annually for cattle grazing or farming.

[*]有問題的是關於besides放置的位置。通常besides都是接一個完整的句子或是名詞。例如:
I think she has many good qualities besides being very beautiful.
The house was too expensive and too big. Besides, I'd grown fond of our little rented house.

可是這句話中,我對於besides的位置感到疑惑,總覺得原句是否應該這麼寫?
A new analysis of satellite images shows that on average 15,500 sq km of forest is being cut down by selective logging (伐木)each year. Besides, this is a similar amount clear-cut annually for cattle grazing or farming.


2.The Amazonian rainforest is being destroyed at double[*] the rate of all previous estimates, according to research published today in the journal Science.

[*]這裡是不是寫成at double rate 就可以了。不明白為什麼要再加一個冠詞the




因為不曾看到這樣的用法,直到今天閱讀的文章中出現這樣的問題,不曉得是我的文法知識不足,還是其實是筆誤?還請高手多多指教!!!
