Preliminary results are presented of studies in the tropical rain forest zone on the Pacific Coast of Colombia, in particular on: natural regeneration (including: regeneration thinnings of various intensities; liberation fellings in secondary growth; and in a forest cleared of mature timber); enrichment plantings; stand establishment (18 spp. studied); and nursery practice, including germination studies (20 spp.). Silvicultural and species recommendations, and lists of tree species (with common names) classified by use, are given.
