With the participation of more than 500 scientists and decision-makers from all over the world, the Third IUFRO Latin American Congress took place in San José, Costa Rica from 12 to 15 June 2013 to discuss forests ecosystem services, and their role in landscape management as well as related research needs in the region. This congress, jointly organized with the Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center (CATIE), is this year’s biggest forest science event in Latin America. The hydrological services of forest ecosystems -as one of many services forests provide- and the relationship between water resources and management practices was a central topic of the Conference among others.
