Decision time for cloud forests

At a Tropical Montane Cloud Forest workshop held at Cambridge, UK, in July 1998, 30 scientists, professional managers, and NGO conservation group members representing more than 14 countries and all global regions, concluded that there is insufficient public and political awareness of the status and values of Tropical Montane Cloud Forests (TMCF). The group suggested that a science-based “pop-doc” would be an effective initial action to remedy this.

2000_Decision_time_for_cloud_forests_smallThis volume is a response to that recommendation. It documents some of the scientific information that will be of interest to other scientists and managers of TMCF, but not overwhelming for a lay reader who is seeking to become more informed about these remarkable ecosystems.


From the Netherlands Dr. Sampurno Bruijnzeel, former member of the Netherlands National IHP Committee, is one of the major contributors to bring tropical forest hydrology research further.
