Natural regeneration of tropical rainforest in Suriname as a land-use option

N.R. de Graaf
1987 Netherlands Journal of Agricultural Science  
The need for management of tropical rain forest in Suriname, and possi bilities of a polycyclic system in natural forest are discussed. The system, essentially a controlled harvesting followed by silvicultural treatments, probably will be a more sustainable and better land-use than shifting cultivation or plantation fore stry, and will create permanent jobs and produce an export product.
