Vegetation ecology of forest-savanna ecotones in the Comoé National Park (Ivory Coast) : Border and ecotone detection, core-area analysis, and ecotone dynamics

Universität Rostock, 2004

Abstract: For the development of conservation concepts for forest species precise knowledge on the size of forest core area is required. For the dynamic of forest ecotones forest succession and regression play an important role. This study addressed vegetation ecological questions along forest-savanna ecotones at tropical dry forest islands with respect to forest edge effects, core area analysis and forest succession to contribute to a better understanding of the studied system. The results are of high relevance for the development of conservation and management plans in West African forests.
