Abstract

The International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) All Divisions 5 Conference in Rotorua, New Zealand, March 11-15, 2003, focused on issues surrounding sustainable foest management and forest products research. As the conference title "Forest Products Research: Providing for Sustainable Choices" suggests, the purpose of the conference was to consider scientific progress towards meeting the rapidly increasing demands for forest products in the context of social, economic, and environmental considerations assocaited with sustainable forest management. Conference attendees addressed challenges and opportunities of sustainable forest management through exchanges of knowledge and experience from presentations, field trips, and formal and informal discussions about forest products research at national and international levels.
