This volume intends to represent an overview of the knowledge on tropical montane cloud forests. 72 chapters cover different topics including cloud forest distribution, climate, soils, biodiversity, hydrological processes, hydrochemistry and water quality, climate change impacts, and cloud forest conservation, management, restoration as well as the biological and hydrological value of these forests. The final chapter aims to present a synthesis by some cloud forest researchers, which summarizes the information and considers the sustainability of these forests in an ever-changing world. This book may serve as a reference for academic researchers and students of environmental science and ecology, as well as practitioners (natural resources management, forest conservation) and decision makers at local, national, and international levels.
