  • A special issue for the journal International Journal of Biodiversity Science, Ecosystem Services & Management 12(1-2) was published on "Synergies between Biodiversity and Timber Management" in April 2016. This Special Issue is based on a technical session entitled "How does biodiversity help to manage high-value timber species, and vice-versa?", heldat the IUFRO 2014 World Congress in Salt Lake City, USA. Papers examine potential positive interactions between biodiversity and managing for timber production, especially of high-value species. These management goals can be in conflict. But the increasing demands for high-quality timber as well as for biodiversity conservation require that we consider these aims together. Papers range geographically from tropical to temperate forests.

  • A special issue for the journal Forest Ecology and Management 255 (2) was published on the "Sustainable management of high-value timber species of the Meliaceae" in 2008. This special issue grew out of the technical session entitled "Sustainable management of high value timber species of the Meliaceae: a global perspective", held at the 2005 IUFRO World Congress at Brisbane, Australia.
