In this elegant book, we have defined "Tropical Forests" broadly, into five different themes: (1) tropical forest structure, synergy.

Evaluation in tropical forestry is confronted with the obligation of discovering strategies to alleviate pressure on remaining forests, and strategies to strengthen forest regeneration and restore abandoned lands, using productive choices that could be partaking to local human populations.
