This section provides additional materials from our work on mahogany, including interactive maps of field sites and images of the forests & landscapes where we work, of forest management (logging) in action, and of day-to-day activities associated with this kind of research program. As well, we suggest additional readings & links for visitors who want to know more about mahogany, tropical timber species, and forest management in the tropics.
