The Brazilian state of Amazonas has used an extensive inventory of flood-prone parts of its forests as the basis for its new sustainable logging legislation for the floodplain forests. The state's leaders used the inventory - which was the result of extensive research by a team of German scientists - to pass the new law, which governs how often a species may be logged, how much timber may be taken and the necessary tree circumference. The areas - known as the Várzea forests - are regularly flooded by the Amazon and Solimões rivers. The forests provide unique systems but they are at risk from intensive logging.
