Tropical dry forests receive international recognition

Sanchez-Azofeifa. This tactic means convincing governments to realize the value of conserving tropical dry forest land and in turn, paying the land owners environmental services fees in exchange for a promise the land won't be used for commercial development. Costa Rica is a leader in this strategy, having paid more than US$175 million in environmental services fees since the late 1990's.

The network is made up of top scientists in the field from around the globe including Sanchez-Azofeifa, who will co-ordinate their efforts. Even from a research point of view, the group has some catching up to do. Since 1945, the ratio of papers published about rainforests versus dry forests is 300 to 1, says Sanchez-Azofeifa.

Still, the research won't help if policy makers are not taking notice. "You can publish all you want but if it doesn't have any direct impact on what is happening in these countries, it doesn't matter," he says.
