In West Africa, malaria is a leading cause of disease-induced fatalities. While it is generally thought that urbanization reduces malaria incidence, the relationship between urbanicity, i.e., the impact of living in urban areas, and transmission remains unclear. This study aims to explore this association in Ghana, using eight district-level datase...

Background Several studies that aim to enhance the understanding of malaria transmission and persistence in urban settings failed to address its underlining complexity. This study aims at doing that by applying qualitative and participatory-based system analysis and mapping to elicit the system’s emergent properties. Methods In two experts’ worksh...

Several studies that aim to enhance the understanding of malaria transmission and persistence in urban settings failed to address its underlining complexity. We aim at doing that by applying a qualitative and participatory-based system analysis and mapping to elicit the system’s emergent properties. In two experts’ workshops, we sketched and refine...

The ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic threatens global health thereby causing unprecedented social, economic, and political disruptions. One way to prevent such a pandemic is through interventions at the human-animal-environment interface by using an integrated One Health (OH) approach. This systematic literature review documente...

Cola nitida is a West African tree, commonly used for pharmaceutical purposes. In Benin, the species is used for many purposes ranging from traditional rituals to domestic consumption. Nowadays, the species, as well as its offspring, are hardly encountered. So far, research on the species focused on a single domain such as ethnobotany and phytochem...

Human‐modified systems come as innovative ones necessary to be more understood to attain biodiversity conservation goals. This study aimed to assess the effect of human disturbance on the population structure of Pterocarpus erinaceus in different land use types (Highly protected area, Moderately protected area and Non‐protected area) in Sudanian sa...

Objective: The current paper aims to assess the relative performance of three permutation methods of residuals where exact probability was used. Material and Methods: A total of 198 Monte Carlo simulations were run for the three permutation of residuals considering different population distributions, increasing sample size and variance under the un...

Several thousands of chemical substances are registered every year for different purposes, and sometimes many of them are claimed to play the same role. To establish and compare their toxicities, the determination of the lethal concentrations is usually necessary and should account for natural mortality. However, many of the statistical software pa...

Dendrometric parameters such as tree DBH, height, crown diameter and size characteristics of leaves and fruit production collected from Vitellaria paradoxa subsp. growing in three land use types in Pendjari Biosphere Reserve (PBR) were analyzed. A total of 36 circular plots of 15 m diameter were randomly set in the three main land use sites of the...

The agromorphological variability between various pearl millet cultivars was evaluated to examine the structure of millet in Benin Republic. Therefore, Forty-two (42) cultivars of pearl millet were collected from four agro-ecological areas viz North Extreme Zone (AEZ1), cotton Zone of northern (AEZ2), Food Zone of South-Borgou (AEZ3) and West-Ataco...

Invasive plant species are today among the biggest threats to integrity of many ecosystems including that of the protected areas. Climate change may exacerbate the negative effects of invasive plant species. Here, we used the Maximum Entropy model to project habitat suitability for Lantana camara L., an invasive plant species under current and futu...
