Plantations of Anacardium occidentale L. (cashew tree) used as cash crops in West Africa also contribute to the mitigation of climate change. To assess this mitigation function, volume and biomass models were developed and applied in a plantation in central Benin. Non-destructive sampling was implemented on 52 trees distributed in 32 plots of 50 m...

Allometric equations are required for a rapid estimation of commercial timber volume and forest biomass stocks. In order to preserve the forest ecosystem, this study applied a non-destructive sampling approach to measure biophysical properties of living trees. From these measurements, volume and biomass models were developed for 11 dominant tree sp...

The overall objective of the research was to generate soil organic carbon (SOC) reference data for the benefit of the REDD+ initiatives. In this study, SOC was derived from direct measurements of organic matter (OM) content in soil. Six hundred and seventy five soil samples were collected to 30 cm depth in black cotton soil and across three vegetat...

Allometric equations developed for the Lama forest, located in southern Benin, West Africa, were applied to estimate carbon stocks of three vegetation types: undisturbed forest, degraded forest, and fallow. Carbon stock of the undisturbed forest was 2.7 times higher than that in the degraded forest and 3.4 times higher than that in fallow. The stru...

Medicinal plants play an important role in human livelihoods. However, the harvest of different organs may be destructive. Sarcocephalus latifolius is a species whose roots are harvested for medicinal purposes. This study was carried out to assess the root characteristics, biomass yield and morphological variations within different habitats of sout...

Non Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) are exploited daily by rural populations in the watershed of "Donga" because of their socio-economic importance. The increasing level of exploitation of NTFPs is threatening the sustainability of those ecosystems. This study permitted to make an inventory of some NTFPs used by the different ethnic groups of the ba...
