The need is stressed for forest researchers to keep abreast of not only what is happening in their own fields, but also what is happening in related fields and in global forest policy. It is argued that this expansion of forest research will bring it in potential competition with allied sciences but, in the world of tomorrow, this integrative nature will actually be the strength of forest science.
