Understanding the effect of seed size and maturity level on their germination capacity is essential to propagate a species effectively. This study assessed variations in seed germination of the indigenous fruit tree species Lannea microcarpa in relation to seed maturity levels and morphotype traits. Three fruit maturity levels (green, green-red, an...

Background The growing interest for more natural products in food and health industries has led to increasing research on traditional knowledge related to plants. While theoretical knowledge (TK) on the uses of a species informs on the wide spectrum of potential uses of that species, actual uses (AU) highlight their potential being actually used. D...

Bombax costatum est une espèce agroforestière menacée de disparition du fait des fortes pressions anthropiques qu’elle subit par le prélèvement de son calice. La présente étude a pour objectif d’évaluer l’influence des modes d’affectation des terres sur les caractéristiques dendrométriques, les types morphologiques et la phénologie de B. costatum d...

There are several evidences of the prominent roles that non-timber forest products (NTFPs), and particularly wild edible fruit (WEF) play for human food security and poverty alleviation. Although neglected in the past, there are increasing interest on WEF species, and evaluation of their fruit production has become essential. Quantifying the fruit...

Moringa oleifera Lam. is an agroforestry species grown for its various uses. Despite its great socio-economic importance, the species is still not well exploited and considered as a neglected and underutilised species. This study aimed at identifying the morphotypes of M. oleifera and assessing how they were related to climatic conditions and farme...

Moringa oleifera (Moringaceae) is a medium-size agroforestry tree that originated from south Asia, but has become naturalised in many countries globally. Moringa oleifera has gained importance due to its multipurpose uses and good adaptability to both humid and dry climates. Almost all parts of the plant are used. The species is considered as a neg...

Rural populations are closely dependent on plant resources for their daily needs. Fruit productivity of these species is an indicator of their economic potential and their capacity to regenerate. This is also fundamental to define sustainable management strategies of species. The present study assessed the fruits and seeds productivity of four fore...

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...
