...exploring how people shape the world's forests


IFRI provides a multitude of resources for researchers, partner organizations, and students such as data, publications, training, and access to the IFRI Manual (research methodology, instructions, and sample completed instruments, 18 MB PDF), and Blank Research Instruments (field forms, 1 MB PDF).

Note: The IFRI Manual and Blank Research Instruments were last revised in September 2012.
