    The International Institute of Tropical Forestry - IITF (Instituto Internacional de Dasonomía Tropical) is a tropical forestry research and technology transfer institute and part of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service. The Institute serves as a focal point for bringing external research and educational resources to bear on issues affecting tropical forests and. Research in tropical forestry is confronted with the task of finding strategies to alleviate pressure on remaining forests, and techniques to enhance forest regeneration and restore abandoned lands, using productive alternatives that can be attractive to local human populations. In addition.
