The project delivered approaches to integrate tools and approaches for growth and yield prediction to empower target institutions to improve forest management in tropical countries. The methods developed by R6915 have been linked to outputs from the closely-related R7278 through combined pilot application studies in Indonesia and Guyana. The models within the framework have been applied to predict the response of tropical forests to a variety of management options, and to develop indicators of sustainable management.
