The model describes how world forests and their industries interact through international trade. This book provides a complete introduction to this widely applied computer model; it thoroughly documents the methods, data, and computer software of the mode and demonstrates the model’s usefulness in addressing international economic and environmental issues l. Six applications of the model show its usefulness in addressing international economic and environmental issues.
