Clim. Change, 19(1-2), Sep. 1991. Despite the debate over the influence of tropical forests on climate, there is little consensus about what we know and understand, and still less about the implications for development policy. This special issue addresses some of the salient questions and contains analyses through 16 papers, 13 of which are followed by a separately authored commentary. The citations for each paper are listed below, and those for commentaries given in parentheses. Inquire for back issues from Kluwer Acad. Pub., POB 17, 3300 AA Dordrecht, Neth.
