Forest Operation in the Tropics: Timber and Non-Timber Forest Products

Forest operations in the tropics should be carried out to promote sustainable management of tropical forests. The fact that tropical forest is well recognized as the harbors of the Earth's biodiversity has made tropical forest play an important role in the global environmental issue.

Forest operations in the tropics face challenges as on the one side, the forest is important to support the economics of a country, but at the same time, this activity may bring environmental impacts.

Therefore, as one of JMHT's mission to support any scientific effort required for sustainable development, JMHT in collaboration with IUFRO RG 3.07 Forest Operation in The Tropics invites potential authors to publish different research results, thoughts, and original ideas related to forest operation in the tropics.

This Special Issue's main purpose is to underline the interdisciplinary connections supporting forest operations in the tropics. The main focuses lay on new ideas and suggestions to promote sustainable forest operation in the tropics that span from harvest methods, system productivity, and methods for conducting safe, efficient, and environmentally acceptable operations in tropical forests that are having specific characteristics on its commodities, forest, work environment, working techniques, human health, and well-being.

Selected manuscripts will be published in a Special Issue entitled "Forest Operation in the Tropics: Timber and Non-Timber Forest Products," which is planned to be published in June 2022. The deadline of the submission is the February 22nd, 2022 and the guideline for submission preparation is available at https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/jmht/about/submissions
