Vegetation ecology of a woodland-savanna mosaic in central Benin (West Africa) : Ecosystem analysis with focus on the impact of selective logging

Universität Rostock, 2005

Abstract: A main consequence of global change in West Africa is an increasing land use. In central Benin human impact on near nature systems was studied. The detailed ecosystem analysis serves for a better understanding of vegetation composition, vegetation structure and the interrelation of environmental parameters and vegetation of dry forests and different savanna types in West Africa. Analyses with respect to the impact of selective logging on the vegetation system may help to set up plans for silvicultural management for comparable systems in West Africa.
