    Description

    Tropical forests have always been sources for prized timbers, rubber, tannin, and other forest products for use worldwide. However, with the recent concern regarding global change, the importance of effective forest products management and utilization has increased significantly. The USDA Forest Service's Forest Products Laboratory at Madison, Wisconsin, has embarked on a new program on the utilization and identification of and research on tropical tree species. This new work will be centered at the Laboratory and at the Forest Service's Institute of Tropical Forestry in Puerto Rico.
