Description

  • The main point of thise paper is to examine how tropical forestry practices can contribute to maintaining or enhancing the ability of forests to adapt to global climate change.
  • It considers challenges and opportunities for the integration of tropical forest management in broader methods of adaptation to climate change.
  • The authors examine the need for reassessing current reforestation practices due to changes in climate and climate variability in tropical forest regions. They also identify obstacles and opportunities for integrating tropical forest management in broader climate change adaptation.
  • Each recommendation is illustrated with an example from the American tropics.
