Objectives The research objectives of all CELOS forestry experiments, which date back to the 60's, are to provide knowledge upon which long term strategic Land use decisions can be made.

The experiments include specifically the following:
  • The analysis of the effects of management and other practices on the rainforest ecosystems, the so called anthropogenic interferences;
  • The investigation of ecological processes, particularly those relating to timber production and to effects on neighboring systems;
  • The development of principles and criteria on which to base the planned management of the tropical rainforest.

Considerations In setting these objectives a number of considerations apply of which some are and being executed in the CELOS Forestry Experiments, i.e.:

  • The paucity of quantitative knowledge about ecological processes in the
    tropical rainforest, particularly those relating to potential productivity;
  • The knowledge that massive interference elsewhere in the tropics and also
    locally in Suriname has led to an irreversible decline in forest productivity;
  • The fact that the tropical rainforest resources of Suriname covering about
    90% of the land surface, must be developed rationally and conservatively as
    a national asset.

In this respect the objectives, methods and elaborations of all important forestry experiments, the CELOS Forest Management System (CMS) was developed and meanwhile applied in some tropical forest area of the Amazone basin.

Celos Management System

  • The CELOS Management System consists of two integrated sub-systems:
    the CELOS Harvesting System (CHS) which basically deals with logging and
    skidding methods with a reduced impact on the forest ecosystem;
  • The CELOS Silvicultural System (CSS) consisting basically of the refinement
    and elimination after harvesting, of trees, shrubs and lianas without
    commercial value. Some of the experiments are ended but others are
