The Forests of the Congo Basin: A Preliminary Assessment/ Les Forets du Bassin du Congo: Evaluation Preliminaire" (2005) and Forests of the Congo Basin: State of the Forest  (2006) are available in English and French. These reports provides a natural history of the Congo Basin, along with current threats to wildlife and forests, and opportunities to conserve and sustainably manage the forest ecosystem. Of particular interest are 1-page highlights of work and challenges in the 11 priority landscapes of the Congo Basin Forest Partnership (CBFP). Poaching/ Bushmeat trade was labeled a severe threat in all six CBFP countries, expected to cause irreversible damage in the next 10 years without immediate intervention.Link: http://carpe.umd.edu/Plone/resources/sof
