PUBLICATIONS


Scientific presentations, publications, and web pages on tropical restoration by Project Director Dr. Lynn Carpenter and academic collaborators

This page lists most of the academic output from the project from 1994 on by the Project Director and her academic collaborators.  It consists of invited  presentations to scientific meetings, publications mostly in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and web pages on the project supported by R.A.I.N.  To be manageable, the list excludes most of the many student projects that also emerged.
