Images from the Global Institute of Sustainable Forestry's Lantern Slide collection: Rare Images from Forestry's Past.
Launched in 2014 by the Global Institute of Sustainable Forestry, the Global Forest Atlas highlights the two largest tropical forest regions of the world, the Amazon basin and the Congo basin. Introducing forest issues in these regions, the forest atlas describes the scientific foundation, trends, and breaking news and research in the region, including research and advocacy of Yale Forestry & Environmental Studies researchers, students, and graduates. The Global Forest Atlas plans to expand coverage of forest issues to both the temperate and the boreal forest regions of the world. For more information on the Global Forest Atlas click here.
The Global Institute offers week-long courses that bring the latest thinking on sustainable forestry management to working professionals.
An intensive one-week course for professionals from around the world, whose work requires understanding the environment.
“’Out of the box’ type of stimulating lectures in an atmosphere that inspired active participation among the students.”
Annika Hall, Investment Advisor
"I really enjoyed the Executive Education in Forestry course. In fact, it was one of the highlights of my federal career. For a professional that deals with forestry issues but lacks a degree in forestry or a science background, the Executive Education in Forestry was the most efficient means to gain that knowledge base."
Lincoln Bramwell, Chief Historian for USDA Forest Service
(Note: Unfortunately, due to unforeseen events, the 2015 Mid-Career Executive Course in Forestry is cancelled. Check back for information on our 2016 course.)
