The Assessment of forest species composition and species diversity is essential in understanding the status of tree population and diversity for conservation purpose. Olokemeji forest reserve is situated in the lowland rain forest of south-western Nigeria and it occupies a total land area of 58.88 km2 . Six study plots of 50m2 each were randomly se...

Forest degradation has become a major concern in many countries around the world as it has become one of the most debilitating land use crisis in tropical ecosystems. Hence, this study assessed the forest degradation indices in Mokwa forest reserve. Data were collected using structured questionnaires and field reconnaissance survey. Five settlement...

Tropical rainforest is continuously threatened by timber exploitation and conversion to other land uses. In this study, tree species diversity and forest structure of Eda Forest Reserve in Ekiti State, Nigeria, were assessed using systematic line transect and purposive sampling techniques for plot demarcation and data collection. Two transects (200...

... Excessive grazing reduces soil vegetation cover and encourages erosion. The quality and quantity of soil are directly affected by overgrazing [61]. Herdsmen and other humanitarian crises in Nigeria are evident from the effect of overgrazing on our farmlands [62]. ...
... However, according to Khumalo and Sibanda (2019), small plots are associated with low yields that negatively affect household food security. Jeminiwa et al. (2018), are of a similar view and were able to conclude that the level of productivity is influenced by farm size. ...
... Impact of forest conversions includes changes in soil, vegetation, hydrological functions, climate change and depletion of natural resources and biodiversity (Jenkins and Schaap, 2018). Halting anthropogenic activities such as timber harvesting, logging, agriculture and promotion of sustainable forestry management practices would contribute to the resilience of a secondary forest in biodiversity and other ecosystem services (Olajuyigbe and Jeminiwa, 2018). However, adequate monitoring, protection and sustainable management of a tropical secondary rainforest require a good knowledge of flora component, diversity and structure (Fang Zeh et al., 2019). ...
