DescriptionTo support the management of the Portuguese eucalyptus forest, the Association of Portuguese Pulp and Paper Industries (CELPA) decided to develop a Eucalyptus Forest Information System (EFIS). The specific goals of the EFIS are: characterization and development of the eucalyptus forest over time; planning of successive national eucalyptus forest inventories; estimation of sustainable eucalyptus pulpwood yield; development of growth and yield models; and monitoring of mean and current annual increment. This paper gives a concise image of the Portuguese eucalyptus forest and explains the structure of the system and the expected results.
