Tropical dry forests are one of the most threatened forest ecosystems globally and are under pressure from cattle grazing, farmland, production of fuel wood and charcoal. Restoration efforts have occurred around the world, and there are a number of case studies, which provide valuable information. The Forest Restoration Information Services (FRIS) is an online tool that offers information on completed and ongoing restoration projects for tropical dry forests and other forest ecosystems.
