are co-publishing a thematic series entitled ‘Forests: Looking to the
Future’ to showcase the latest forestry research and published content
in both journals.

cycling and climate change, to deforestation and long term reforestation
strategies. We would like to welcome original research, reviews,
database, methodology, and software articles that address these topics.

series in your covering letter. For guidelines on formatting your
