Description: Forestry has a long history in the Caribbean lslands, in particular, in Puerto Rico. This experience, implemented in recent years through numerous partnerships, involves research, inventory and monitoring, and resource management, and has been communicated through demonstration and educational activities. Much of this history is documented in the 24 volumes of the Caribbean Forester, in 58 years of Annual Reports or Annual Letters written by the U.S. Forest Service's lnternational lnstitute of Tropical Forestry (IITF), in forestry bibliographies, and numerous publications in scientific journals as well as the proceedings of seminars, meetings and conferences. Forest managers and researchers, not only in the United States, but also in the international arena, have been the recipients of information on tropical forestry through the IITF's library and its program in international cooperation. The purpose of this paper is to briefly summarize Forest Service activities in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
