Frances Seymour, the Center for International Forestry Research Director-General, and Emily Ostrom, the 2009 Nobel Prize winner for Economics, spoke on the complex nature of solving forestry issues at the 2010 International Union of Forest Research Organizations World Congress. Ostrom advocated for the formation and use of interdisciplinary teams in forest monitoring and management, as well as the important role of community forestry. She asserts that the complex issues of forestry will require a complex response, and a united front in community activism is necessary for effective forest conservation. Photo credit: Forests News
