    Description

    This document provides over 4,000 citations from the world literature on forest products for Latin America. Citations are grouped in 11 subject areas, with emphasis on products made directly from wood. Excluded are nonwood products such as rattan, bamboo, nuts, fruits, honey, and mushrooms. Also excluded are services from the forest, such as watershed protection, recreation, tourism, and wildlife. Primary sources of citations include USDA-AGRICOLA, CAB, and Forest Products Society’s FOREST (AIDS) system, which were searched electronically. Citations prior to the late 1960s were obtained by manual searches in the Forest Products Laboratory’s (FPL) Library and searches of the literature cited in documents. Citations are arranged by subject areas, author, and year. Annotations or abstracts are provided where possible. Approximately 4,000 citations are included; some citations are listed in more than one subject area, as appropriate.
