Almost 100 scientists and practitioners, representing a range of disciplines and interests, came from some 25 countries in primarily tropical areas. Four days of technical discussions were followed by two days of summation and of planning for succeeding implementations. Part 1 is the introduction, part 2 : criteria for land development, part 3 : land clearing methods, part 4 : land clearing and development in different ecologies, part 5 : impact of land clearing on the ecosystem, part 6 : soil management, part 7 : socioeconomic considerations.
