Abstract
<p><em>Aim of study:</em> Knowledge Management (KM) tools facilitate the implementation of knowledge processes by identifying, creating, structuring, and sharing knowledge through use of information technology in order to improve decision-making. In this contribution, we review the way in which KM tools and techniques are used in forest management, and categorize a selected set of them according to their contribution to support decision makers in the phases of problem identification, problem modelling, and problem solving.</p><p><em>Material and Methods</em>: Existing examples of cognitive mapping tools, web portals, workflow systems, best practices, and expert ...
