Tropical forests constitute almost half of the global forest cover, account for 35% of the global net primary productivity and thereby have potential to contribute substantially to sequester atmospheric CO2 and offset climate change impact. However, deforestation and degradation lead by unsustainable management of tropical forests contribute to the...

... Terrestrial forest ecosystems play a crucial role in offsetting global carbon inputs ( Gibbs et al., 2007 ;Lewis et al., 2009 ;Pan et al., 2011 ) and climate change impacts ( Canadell and Raupach, 2008 ;Rahman et al., 2017 ). Forests are important carbon sink globally ( Canadell and Raupach, 2008 ;Pan et al., 2011 ;Federici et al., 2015 ) with an average net removal estimated at -Abbreviations: AGB, aboveground biomass; AGC, aboveground carbon; ANOVA, analysis of variance; CFCL, classified forest of Comoé-Léraba; DBH, Diameter at breast height; IUCN, International Union for Conservation of Nature; MAP, mean annual precipitation; MAT, mean annual temperature; NGR, Nazinga game ranch; WASCAL, West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use; WDPA, world database of protected areas; WNP, W national park; WRB, wildlife reserve of Bontioli. ...
... In general, species diversity is regular of the uttermost requisite or essential keys employed to evaluate an ecosystem. An abundant ecological community with substantial species diversity holds a high-rise Shannon-Weiner (H) value while on the contrary, an ecological community with low (H) confers a lower species diversity (Deka et al., 2012;Sobuj & Rahman, 2011 for Adiabo, Idim Ita, Gabu and Aliforkpa community forest, respectively lower than that of 3.1 and 3.3 for different rainforest sites in South-western Nigeria (Adekunle, 2006;Onyekwelu et al., 2008) and that of 2.65 obtained for tropical forests of Kudarya in the Western Ghats, India (Sundaranpandian and Swamy, 2000). Nevertheless, it ought to be well known that essential quantitative considerations of species varieties connecting forest environments are dependent on plot size, sample size, climatic factors, as well as other site components. ...
... This sanctuary's terrain consists of undulating hills of varying heights and tiny, low-lying valleys. The highest hilltop is approximately 67 meters above sea level (Sobuj & Rahman, 2011). Several hill ridges are extending in various directions. ...
