Tropical Forest Ecology - The Basis for Conservation and Management
Montagnini, Florencia, Jordan, Carl F.
Research in tropical forestry is confronted with the task of finding strategies to alleviate pressure on
remaining forests, and techniques to enhance forest regeneration and restore abandoned lands, using
productive alternatives that can be attractive to local human populations. In addition, sustainable forestry in
tropical countries must be supported by adequate policies to promote and maintain specific activities at local
and regional scales.
