Tree diversity in West Africa is threatened by intensified land uses and salinization, and farmers’ role in conservation of tree species is unclear. We hypothesized that farmers contribute to conservation of tree diversity through protection of trees in their agroforestry landscapes and compared the diversity and structure of the tree vegetation ac...

Different meals and dishes eaten every day can contribute differently to daily nutrient intakes and diet status. This research aims to examine the contribution of meals and dishes to the macronutrient and micronutrient daily intake of rural communities. A repeated (3-day) 24 hour food recall was carried out. Analysis of macronutrient and micronutri...
