The Organization for Tropical Studies is offering a short specialty course in Indonesia, July 9-18, prior to the 2010 annual meeting of the Association of Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC) in Bali. The course will offer an introduction to the theoretical approaches and practical applications of rainforest restoration. The course is being developed to offer graduate students and faculty an insight into research opportunities in Indonesia and the opportunity to explore the challenges of restoration in light of carbon offset proposals. The course will also examine the challenges in meeting future forest monitoring requirements associated with efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD).
