Abstract
  • The study presents two main parts: first, a review of tropical silviculture and forest management systems and, second, the investigation of a growth and yield model which has some potential for application in the tropical region. The presentation of tropical silviculture includes: (1) an overview of the biological characteristics of the tropical forest, (2) a review of different management techniques and their level of success, (3) a discussion of the economic and institutional contexts, and (4) some important conclusions about different management regimes. The growth and yield model employs a diameter class matrix model which predicts future forest structure using the basal area and diameter class distribution of current stands. The coefficients are developed using inventory data from mixed species hardwood stands of the West Virginia University Forests. The conditions for applications of such a model in the tropical region are discussed.
