Abstract

The Brazilian National System of Forest Permanent Plots (SisPP) is a governmental initiative designed and being implemented in partnership by the Ministry of Environment (MMA), represented by the National Forest Programme (PNF) and the Brazilian Forest Service (SFB) and the Embrapa Forestry (a research center of the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation - Embrapa). The proposal was presented, discussed and approved by the Brazilian forest inventory community in a workshop carried out in September 2004. The methodological model converged to a national network organized by biomes, interconnecting existent initiatives (in the biomes Amazonia and Caatinga) and promoting new networks (in the biomes Cerrado, Pantanal and Atlantic Rain Forest).
