Tropical Forest Update

Keeping track of the forest

Forests are complex ecosystems, and they change over time. Contemporary sustainable forest management (SFM) requires the collection and analysis of timely, accurate, meaningful data to assist in understanding these systems, monitoring changes, and tracking their harvested products. This edition of the TFU takes a look at some of ITTO’s efforts to help forest managers address this information challenge.
