Database of Dendrometric Models - The database of Dendrometric models has been being developed by Allan Sims and Andres Kiviste with the support of several instituions from Estonia and the European Forest Institute.

FORMODELS database The database for forest models has been being developed by Céline Meredieu from INRA and Christophe Orazio from IEFC.

Register of Ecological Models (REM) is a meta-database for existing mathematical models in ecology and environmental sciences.

Forest Model Archive A conservatory of research contributions in forest modeling and to make easier the access to such models by other researchers which has been being developed by Keith Rennolls from University of Greenwich.

Departamento de Engenharia Florestal The Forestry Department from Technical University of Lisbon.

Centro de Estudos Florestais The Forestry Research Centre from Technical University of Lisbon.

FORSEE Working Group on Regional indicators for sustainable forest management To have a better scope on indicators for sustainable forest management.

EUROFOREST PORTAL – The European Forest Information Portal (EUROFOREST) is a free, non-commercial service providing information for forest information users. The portal aims to meet demands for better access to current information on European forests and forestry in an easily accessible and user-friendly form. It represents a web-based entry point into pan-European forest information in the selected topics.

Global Forest Information Service – The Global Forest Information Service (GFIS) provides the framework to share forest-related data and information through a single gateway. It promotes the dissemination and sharing of forest and tree-related information and knowledge among the global forestry community by developing common information exchange standards, building capacity and enhancing partnerships among forestry information providers and users.
