Article
Full-text available
South Africa has experienced massive urbanisation and socioeconomic development over the past two decades. Concomitantly, the national energy policy focuses on the provision of modern fuels, notably electricity, for domestic use. Given this policy environment and socioeconomic development, we examine pertinent literature and policies from South Afr...
Article
Full-text available
Understanding tree species autecology and population structure supports effective conservation actions. Of particular importance are multipurpose trees that provide non-timber forest products (NTFPs). We assessed the population structures and morphologies of two species of NTFP trees in the genus Mimusops across bioclimatic zones in Benin by sampli...
Article
Full-text available
Understanding the niche and habitat requirements of useful and threatened species, their shifts under climate change and how well protected areas (PAs) preserve these habitats is relevant for guiding sustainable management actions. Here we assessed the ecological factors underlying the distribution of two multipurpose and threatened species, Mimuso...
Article
An ethnobotanical study was conducted with the main socio-cultural groups on woody plants in the riparian lands of the Mono Biosphere Reserve in Benin which is newly created and recognized by the Unesco in 2017. This study aims to determine the wood species with high ethnobotanical value in order to provide to the managers, the plant species which...
Article
Full-text available
Assessing species phenology provides useful understanding about their autecology, to contribute to management strategies. We monitored reproductive phenology of Mimusops andongensis and Mimusops kummel, and its relationship with climate, tree diameter and canopy position. We sampled trees in six diameter classes and noted their canopy position. For...
Article
Full-text available
Multipurpose NTFP species typically experience higher harvest demand because of their multiple uses, which, when combined with unsustainable land use practices, may threaten population viability. We assessed local knowledge on the uses, habitat, and population status of Mimusops andongensis and Mimusops kummel, both multipurpose NTFP species in Ben...
Article
Full-text available
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
Research into the benefits that ecosystems contribute to human wellbeing has multiplied over the last few years following from the seminal contributions of the international Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. In comparison, the fact that some ecosystem goods and services undermine or harm human wellbeing has been seriously overlooked. These negative...
Article
Full-text available
A study has been undertaken in the natural undergrowth of private teak plantations in Abomey—Calavi using the synusial approach to phytosociology. Pedological and topographical factors and private teak plantation production within plant communities have been studied. Mallotus oppositifolius and Macrosphyra longistyla community is identified on acid...
