Tropical Ecology and Management

To be announced


Tropical forests continue to get much international attention. In many cases this attention is related to small- and large-scale destruction. Remaining tropical forests are used, but also abused. Sustainable management is needed, and should be based on sound ecological, social and economical information. This PhD course focuses on the ecological basis of sound tropical forest management.

Course set-up (of last edition)

Whole week, 9 half days course, 1 half day minisymposium:

  • Per half day: 2 lectures (2 speakers, each 1 lecture), 1 hour joint discussion on a few selected papers, and then 1 hour PhD –Msc presentations
  • The last afternoon of the course will consist of a mini symposium in which recent developments in tropical forest management in one country, Bolivia, will be presented and discussed. The symposium is directed at a broad public.

The speakers will give an overview of the latest developments in their scientific field and will indicate how these developments can be used in forest management.
