Abstract: Economics can affect decisions about forest resource management and utilization, and in turn, the ecosystem benefits received. In a time of market, policy, and climate transformations, economic analyses are critical to help policy-makers and resource managers make appropriate decisions. At the 2016 Meeting of the International Society of Forest Resource Economics (ISFRE), researchers and practitioners addressed these topics in 63 oral, 11 poster, 2 panel, and 2 keynote presentations. Abstracts and full manuscripts are grouped into 8 categories: Economic Impact Analysis, International Trade, Ecosystem Services and Non-Market Valuation, Policy and Governance, Climate Change and Bioenergy Markets, Traditional and Non-Timber Forest Product Markets, Forest Landowners and Ownership Trends, and Forest Management.

Keywords: forest economics, forest product markets, forest resource policy, land owners, resource management
