NYBG launches Amazon Forest Program to help conserve Earth's largest intact forest
Date:2/2/2014

tate of Rondnia, where many of the Garden's Amazon Forest Program activities are currently focused. Rondnia's forests are severely threatened by soybean farming, cattle ranching, settlements, mining, and hydroelectric projects.

The Amazon phase of the National Forest Inventory will begin in Rondnia in 2014. The Garden is working with the Brazilian Forest Service, the regional environmental protection agency, and the Federal University of Rondnia to make Jamari National Forest in Rondnia a model of forest management for the Amazonian national forests where logging concessions will be granted. A pilot training course for mateiros has already been completed there. Also, the Garden has started a project in collaboration with institutions in Rondnia, neighboring Acre state, and Santa Cruz, Bolivia, to conduct a botanical inventory of Rondnia's border regions.

Program Leadership Builds on Decades of Research and Collaboration in the Amazon

Dr. Daly, the director of the Garden's Amazon Forest Program, has studied the flora of Amazonia for more than three decades, with a concentration on the Burseraceae (frankincense and myrrh family), one of the most difficult, diverse, and ecologically important Amazonian tree families. He has focused much of his work in the Brazilian state of Acre, where he has catalogued the flora and studied non-timber forest products to help diversify the regional forest economy.

By making his research program an indispensable source of information on the plant resources of southwestern Amazonia, Dr. Daly and his collaborators have advanced conservation and guided public policy.

They have participated directly in a state zoning project in Acre, providing justifications for the creation of new conservation units, and they are part of a tri-national consortium that is helping to monitor the impacts of a new highway linking Amazonia and the Pacific Ocean. Dr. Daly has worked closely with Brazilian col
