Special issue of Forests: Call for Manuscript Submissions
Special Issue "Non-Wood Forest Products Management: Inventory, Planning, Governance, Marketing and Trade"
The International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO Units 4.04.04—Sustainable Forest Management Scheduling and 5.11-Non-Wood Forest Products, IUFRO Task Force on Unlocking the Bioeconomy and Non-Timber Forest Products) as well as the 19th Symposium on Systems Analysis in Forest Resources (SSAFR 2021) are sponsoring this Special Issue of Forests (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/forests).
We welcome the submission of manuscripts for publication in this Forests special issue (SI). There are a myriad of opportunities to unlock the full potential of NWFPs, such as creating new knowledge and tools to optimize the sustainable provision and profitability of NWFPs, fostering the development of market conditions for NWFPs, and developing economic and governance strategies for the better management of wild forest products—particularly in low-income countries. Thus, this SI aims at contributing to the dissemination of research endeavors involving the development of models, methods, processes, and decision support tools to address the inventory, planning, harvesting, governance, certification, marketing, and trade of NWFPs. This will be influential to strengthen the NWFP knowledge base and of research strategies to support the full encapsulation of NWFPs in the framework of the sustainable management of forest ecosystems. Papers submitted for publication in this Special Issue will undergo a rigorous peer review process with the aim of prompt and wide dissemination of research results and applications.
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2022.
