Abstract This entry reviews the composite international legal landscape addressing forest biodiversity. It analyses the treatment of biodiversity in international instruments concerning forests, and the treatment of forests in international instruments concerning species, habitats and biodiversity. The conclusions reflect on the complex picture emerging from the interplay of these sources, shortcomings in their implementation and challenges to future action, including future legal research.
