The Forests and Climate Change Toolbox has been developed to build understanding and technical proficiency on issues of climate change and forests including mitigation, adaptation, carbon accounting and markets, and biofuels.
Our DOMAIN software uses GIS layers of environmental factors, such as climate, soil and land use, to construct an environmental habitat envelope or domain on the basis of points for the known distribution points of a species. The application then generates a map showing similarities across areas within the target region.
The C&I Toolbox Series comprises nine tools that were developed during the CIFOR project on Testing Criteria and Indicators for Sustainable Forest Management. The tools are aimed to help users develop and assess C&I of sustainable and equitable forest management.
The Forest Land Oriented Resource Envisioning System is a model to help explore the consequences at landscape scale of policies and other initiatives intended to influence land use in tropical development. It seeks to provide an accessible platform to foster interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers and resource managers, and to facilitate empirical tests of hypotheses and other propositions.
The Tree Growth and Permanent Plot Information System, promotes more effective use of existing data and knowledge about tree growth in both planted and natural forests throughout the world.
VegClass is a rapid, cost-effective method of surveying and classifying vegetation in forested landscape mosaics, developed using a minimum combination of variables including vegetation structure, plant species and plant functional types (PFTs).
