Here we synthesize the current consensus on landscape approaches. This is based on published literature and a consensus-building process to define good practice and is validated by a survey of practitioners.

    Sapelli (Entandrophragma cylindricum) and tali (Erythrophleum suaveolens) are among the most important timber
    species harvested from Congo Basin forests. They also host edible caterpillars, Imbrasia oyemensis and Cirina
