About symposium

Tropical forests have been continuing to be disrupted by land use activities, among which forest harvesting has been one of the drivers.

The symposium aims to bring scholars, professionals, and students together to share the best available knowledge, tools and practices on forest operations in the tropics. The symposium will address four key issues with invited talks, scientific presentations, and working group discussions.

The symposium will be organized by Tropical Forest Ecosystem Sciences Research Center, Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences Universiti Putra Malaysia Bintulu Sarawak(TROFES-UPMBS) in cooperation with International Union Forest Research Organization (IUFRO).
