Sclerocarya birrea (A. Rich.) Hochst. is a common species in the dry zones of Africa. Although appreciated by the populations for its fruit, the subspecies birrea, present in Western Africa, remains not domesticated and under-utilized; the subspecies caffra, originating in Southern Africa, was recently domesticated there where it occupies a conside...

Introduction. Adansonia digitata L., Balanites aegyptiaca (L.) Del. et Tamarindus indica L. figurent parmi les especes fruitieres de cueillette les plus appreciees par les populations sahelo soudaniennes. Leur role sur le plan nutritionnel et sur la generation de revenus est important. La degradation des ecosystemes constitue une menace sur la ress...

Optimization of Grafting for three Gathered Fruit Species of Sahelo-Sudanese Areas: Balanites aegyptaica, Detarium senegalense and Tamarindus indica. Balanites aegyptiaca, Detarium senegalense and Tamarindus indica are three forest species producing fruits traditionally picked and much enjoyed by Sahelo-Sudanese populations. They consume the pulp e...

Introduction. Zizyphus mauritiana Lam. is a wild fruit tree which is widespread in the Sahel region of Africa. Its fruits, jujubes, are traditionally harvested from wild stands and make up a sizeable part of the income of many rural households. They are eaten either fresh or dried. For a few years now, a programme has been under way to introdu...

Ficus species are multipurpose trees well known by rural populations in Sahelian and Sudanian zones of Africa. Their uses are well documented but their amenability for vegetative propagation has not been extensively studied. This paper compares the rooting ability of stem and aerial root cuttings from thirteen Ficus species found in West Africa. It...

Le microgreffage in vitro mis au point permet un taux de réussite supérieur à 90%, largement supérieur à celui obtenu avec des méthodes de greffege horticole. Il devrait assurer une production massive des variétés de jujubier adaptées aux zones arides. Les travaux ont porté essentiellement sur la variété Gola, d'origine indienne, dont les fruits on...

Khaya senegalensis (Desr.) A. Juss. is an African mahogany species from dry tropical zones. The present study aims at defining the optimum storage conditions in order to retain the viability of seeds of this species in the long term. Monitoring has been going on for four years. Results show that the viability of seeds is retained for at least four...

Introduction. Adansonia digitata L., Balanites aegyptiaca (L.) Del. and Tamarindus indica L. appear among the harvested fruit species most appreciated by the Sahelian Sudano populations. Their nutritional and income role is important. Nevertheless, the degradation of the ecosystem constitutes a threat to this harvested fruit resource and to the spe...

begin{abstract} The fifth generation of the mesoscale model,jointly developed by the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) and The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)MM5, is used for high resolution simulations over areas covering West Africa during boreal summer monsoon. The Oregon State University (OSU) land surface model (LSM) is coupl...

... Different strategies were proposed to improve the growth and survival of fruit trees, e.g. inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi, fertilization with rock phosphate (RP), and plant propagation by micrografting (Reena and Bagyaraj, 1990;Guissou et al., 1998;Bâ et al., 2000;Mathur and Vyas, 2000;Danthu et al., 2002Danthu et al., , 2004Bâ et al., 2003;Guissou, 2009;Sidibé et al., 2012). ...
... seeds. A similar observation was made by Danthu et al. (1995) and Amoakoh et al. (2017), who concluded that soaking in cold water was generally ineffective for germination of the seeds. The result of our study was, however, contrasted with the findings by Ibrahim and Otegbeye (2004) and Baatuuwie et al. (2019) who reported an increased percentage of seed germination with Detarium microcarpum and Adansonia digitatata with soaking water. ...
... In addition, Swietenia senegalensis (syn. genus Khaya) was evaluated over 4 years of storage, and showed that after 1 year, seed germination capacity decreases at room temperature but at 5 °C the germination was sustained at 80% (Danthu et al. 1999). Lozano-Isla et al. (2018) showed that the germination of the tropical tree, Jatropha curcas L., was not significantly affected after 12 months of storage compared to fresh seeds that had not been stored. ...
... The percentage of fresh rind (FR %) and dry rind (DR %) was calculated as rind mass/total mass × 100. The real fresh rind value, RFRV as %FR x fresh rind mass/100 and real dry rind value, RDRV as % DR × dry rind mass/100 were also estimated (Soloviev et al., 2004;Van den Bilcke et al., 2014). ...
... (Fabaceae), Mangifera indica L. (Anacardiaceae), and Canarium sweinfurthii (Burseracea) are used to treat anxiety, hypertension, antiseptic, dysentery, anemia, bronchitis, cough, epilepsy, and depression (Shah et al. 2010;Amoateng et al. 2018;Kandeda et al. 2021bKandeda et al. , 2022. Among these plants, Ziziphus jujuba (Rhamnaceae) is used in Asia to treat asthma, typhoid fever, obesity, sleep disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, urinary deficits, and memory disorders (Arbonnier 2009;Danthu et al. 2002). In traditional African medicine, this plant is mainly used as a diuretic and purgative (Arbonnier 2009;Danthu et al. 2002). ...
... The composition, yield, physical and chemical characteristics of an oil determines its usefulness and its most suitable application (Aluyor and Ori-Jesu, 2008) and no oil from a single source can be suitable for all purposes (Mohammed and Jorf-Thomas, 2003) Ficus thonningii is used in therapeutics in Southern and Eastern African rural communities (Viol et al., 2016). The powdered stem-bark is used in wound healing and aqueous decoction of its bark is used in West Africa to manage cough and treat throat infections (Ndukwe et al., 2007), as influenza remedy, lactation stimulant and diarrhea medicine while its leaves are used to treat malaria and yellow fever (Danthu et al., 2002). The therapeutic properties of this plant result from the phytoconstituents of its different parts. ...
... We can also deduce that the fusion of the two cambiums would start as early as the second week after grafting. Our results confirm those of [27] on African plum trees. The work of [21] showed that the juvenility of rootstocks would be important in grafting success. ...
... Other species of value to people, livestock, agroforestry, sustainable production and nontimber forest products are hardly recognized or not mentioned at all. These include Balanites aegyptiaca (L.) Del., Zygophyllaceae, the Desert Date [26] or 'sump' in Senegal and The Gambia, and Detarium senegalense J. F. Gmel., Caesalpiniaceae, known as 'ditax' or 'dank' in Senegal where, as in The Gambia, it is widespread and common [27,28]. The Applering Acacia, Acacia albida Del. (now generally Faidherbia albida (Del.) A. Chev.) is another major agroforestry species of inestimable value as medicine, food for people and feed for animals and has the peculiarity of losing its leaves during the rains rather than during the dry season so does not inhibit the growth of crops (Fig. 20) [29,30]. ...
... L'arbre joue plusieurs rôles de par ses produits et occupe une place très importante dans la vie des populations (Gning et al., 2013;Sarr et al., 2013;Ndiaye et al., 2017). Leur vente sur les marchés locaux constituerait, pour de nombreux ménages ruraux, un revenu d'appoint loin d'être négligeable (Soloviev et al., 2004). En Afrique de l'Ouest, plusieurs sous-produits végétaux, notamment les produits forestiers non-ligneuses (PFNL) sont reconnus pour leurs contributions aux revenus des populations. ...
