    Description

    Deforestation during the last decade has grown at an alarming rate, giving rise to concern for its potential adverse effects on global climate. The impetus for focusing greater emphasis on tropical forestry management and research was provided by the International Forestry Cooperation Act enacted into law in 1990. The Act enables the Forest Service to intensify its efforts to develop sustainable uses of forest lands, and to provide greater emphasis to managing tropical forests for non-woody, and non-consumptive products. Field centers for this research are the Institute of Pacific Islands Forestry in Hawaii, the Institute of Tropical Forestry in Puerto Rico, and the US. Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wisc. The Institute of Pacific Islands Forestry is responsible for carrying out the Pacific Southwest Research Station's tropical forestry research program in the tropical Pacific. The Institute is also responsible for carrying out the Pacific Southwest Region's State and Private Forestry support program for tropical forestry in the Pacific basin.
