Technical Report
Cette fiche technique présente les principes, et et conditions de l'alimentation des abeilles mellifères en mileux tropicaux
Technical Report
Full-text available
C'est un document technique qui analyse principes et conditions d'alimentation des abeilles mellifères en apiculture tropicale
Article
Full-text available
Morphometric characteristics combined with genetic markers are powerful tools used for determining honey bee subspecies. Bees samples collected from 94 established apiaries distributed throughout all of the Republic of Benin were morphometricaly characterized using seven parameters and the COI-COII regions of mitochondrial DNA were sequenced. Based...

Deforestation and forest degradation have several negative effects on the environment including a loss of species habitats, disturbance of the water cycle and reduced ability to retain CO 2 , with consequences for global warming. We investigated the evolution of forest resources from development regions in Romania affected by both deforestation and...

This study assessed ecological and socio-economic impacts of a participatory forest management project in the Republic of Benin. The study focused on the Wari-Maro Forest Reserve and the ‘Projet d’Aménagement des Massifs Forestiers’ five years after its completion. A forest inventory was carried out using 37 square plots of 729 m2 each to character...

Harvesting of Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) can threaten target species, especially those with limited distribution and density. Exploited species also face threats from habitat fragmentation, fire, and invasive species. We assessed the impact of human disturbances and invasive species on the population of a key multipurpose NTFP species, Mimu...
Article
Full-text available
National political context is widely understood to be an important factor shaping the ecological and socio-economic impacts of protected areas (PAs) and other conservation interventions. Despite broad recognition that national political context matters, however, there is little systematic understanding about how and why it matters, particularly in...
Article
Full-text available
Perennial plants are the main pollen and nectar sources for bees in the tropical areas where most of the annual flora are burned in dry seasons. Therefore perennial plants constitute the most reliable bio materials for determining and evaluating the beekeeping regions of the Republic of Benin. A silvo-melliferous region (S-MR) is a geographical are...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The study assessed the current status of plantations established in the Wari-Maro forest reserve and the socioeconomic impacts of the participatory management practiced during implementation of a Forest Management Project ‘’Projet d’Aménagement des Massifs Forestiers (PAMF)’’ that was concluded after five years. An inventory and a structural charac...

Samples of bees and honey from 101 apiaries were collected in the West African Republic of Benin. Visual inspection revealed high Varroa destructor and Aethina tumida infestations and low Oplostomus fuligineus infestations. A pathogen screen based on bacterial/fungal cultures or microscopic examinations revealed the absence of American and European...

Known as a genus of great socio-cultural and economical importance, Guibourtia Benn. includes morphologically very similar multipurpose sister species, found in various habitats with different climate and soil conditions. In many places, Guibourtia is subject to local overexploitation by forest companies and local communities. As the population den...
Article
Full-text available
The level of genetic diversity in a population can affect ecological processes and plant responses to disturbance. In turn, disturbance can alter population genetic diversity and structure. Populations in fragmented and logged habitats often show reduced genetic diversity and increased inbreeding and differentiation. Long-term harvesting of wild pl...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Genus Guibourtia belongs to the family Fabaceae, subfamily of Caesalpinioideae . In Africa, it is composed of 13 species and includes taxa with a strong cultural and commercial value. Today, the pressure of logging combined with low densities would pose significant threats to some species. Understanding the determinants of species distribution is e...
Article
Long-distance dispersal (LDD) of plants is difficult to measure but disproportionately important for various ecological and evolutionary processes. Dispersal of seeds of gallery-forest trees in savanna provides an opportunity for the study of colonisation processes and species coexistence driven by LDD. Investigations were carried out on 91 isolate...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The modern agricultural intensification model based on high input of chemicals and fertilizers has showed its limit not only in the western agriculture but also in Africa with consequences such as social disparities, environmental concerns i.e. loss of biodiversity, loss of local cultivars, disease and pest resistance, deforestation, reduction in w...
Article
Full-text available
Iroko designates the two African tree species Milicia excelsa (Welw.) C.C.Berg and Milicia regia (A.Chev.) C.C.Berg known as highly valuable in the timber trade. Despite its economical importance and a decrease in population densities due to exploitation, there is a significant lack of ecological and sylvicultural knowledge required for a sustainab...

With the energy crisis, interest is being focused on biofuel crops such as switchgrass. Efficient production of biomass from switchgrass to produce biofuel can contribute to helping address the energy problems faced by humankind. Research was implemented between 2008 and 2009 in Southeast Missouri, USA, to investigate the potential biomass producti...
