    Description

    We addressed the National Forests Inventories Working Group of the 16th Caribbean Foresters Meeting to propose a series of training modules regarding how to conduct national forest inventories and analyze the data collected. Improving regional capacity is crucial to ensuring the sustainable management of Caribbean forest ecosystems. We focused on the statistical and computer skills that will facilitate appropriate forest inventory planning and design, data summation, data quality assurance and quality control, and information presentation congruent with internationally acceptable standards.
