The uncontrolled use of antimicrobials leads to an increase in the resistance of bacteria which becomes a public health problem. To overcome this problem, our study aims to establish a link between chemical composition and antimicrobial activity and then evaluate cytotoxicity, of seven essential oils. Antimicrobial activity of essential oils was as...

La mangrove est une forêt littorale, des régions côtières, tropicales et subtropicales, caractérisée par la présence de palétuviers, arbres dont les racines en forme d’échasses s’enfoncent dans la vase limoneuse des estuaires et des lagunes saumâtres. La mangrove est formée d’espèces d’arbres diversifiées comme les rhizophores et palétuviers qui se...

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...

... Some promising plants tested displayed high antimalarial and/or antioxidant activity, such as the stem bark of Terminalia albida [154], which increased the survival rate of mice with cerebral malaria by reducing ROS/RNS; Terminalia avicennioides, rich in gallic acid [155]; extracts of leaves, fruits and peels of Acacia nilotica, which displayed in vitro schizonticidal activity against P. falciparum [156]; flavonoids of Artemisia annua L combined with artemisinin [157,158]; flavonoids of Dacryodes edulis and Ficus exasperata [159]; phenolic and flavonoid compounds present in Momordica charantia, Bixa orellana, Allamanda cathartica, Ficus exasperata; Cymbopogon citratus [160], Dissotis rotundifolia [161], Trichilia heudelotii, Polyalthia longifolia, and Markhamia tomentosa [162]. It has also been suggested that essential oils from plants present parasiticidal and/or antioxidant activity [163,164]. ...
... Most of the study conducted in Benin has focused on mangrove interests for human populations, particularly medicinal, food, and other uses for human well-being [13,[26][27][28]. Some authors had investigated the floristic and faunal inventory of mangrove ecosystems [29] and some conservation issues [15]. According to Zanvo et al. [30], from 2001 to 2019, mangroves had changed to grasslands (7.25%) or another vegetation type (27.05%), with higher degradation in the municipalities of Abomey-Calavi and Ouidah. ...
... The fruit production increased significantly with the diameter. Similar results were reported on other species in tropical Africa such as Adansonia digitata (Sanogo et al., 2015), Swietenia macrophylla (Snook et al., 2005), Vitellaria paradoxa (Bond e et al., 2019), Kigelia africana, Vitex doniana (Agbani et al., 2017), Lannea microcarpa and Afzelia africana (Haarmeyer et al., 2013;Nacoulma et al., 2016). This can be explained by the fact that individuals with large diameter have high capacities to capture more nutrients for their vegetative development (Rosa et al., 2014) and reduce water stress through their well-developed crown and root systems respectively. ...
