Ecological diversity and pulp, seed and kernel production of the Baobab (Adansonia digitata) in Benin
— This study was carried out in the Sudanian (9°45’-12° N), Sudano-Guinean (7°30’-9°45’ N) and Guinean (6°25’ 7°30’ N) zones of Benin. The distribution and relative abundance of the baobab wasExpand
Local knowledge, pattern and diversity of use of Sclerocarya birrea
BackgroundGrowing interest is on food tree species in general, and particularly indigenous fruit tree species in developing countries since they are inherent to most tropical landscapes and serve theExpand
Spatial genetic structuring of baobab (Adansonia digitata, Malvaceae) in the traditional agroforestry systems of West Africa.
This study evaluates the spatial genetic structure of baobab (Adansonia digitata) populations from West African agroforestry systems at different geographical scales using AFLP fingerprints. ElevenExpand

Ethnic differences in use values and use patterns of Parkia biglobosa in Northern Benin
BackgroundAfrican locust bean tree (Parkia biglobosa) is a multipurpose species used widely in arid Africa by local communities. The present study focused on ethnic differences in use values and useExpand
Natural variation in fruit characteristics, seed germination and seedling growth of Adansonia digitata L. in Benin
Adansonia digitata (baobab tree), a multipurpose tree species, occurs throughout semi-arid and arid zones of Africa. Its survival is, however, threatened by bush fire, over-exploitation, grazing andExpand
Medicinal plant commercialization in Benin: An analysis of profit distribution equity across supply chain actors and its effect on the sustainable use of harvested species
This paper assesses the effects of the marketing of seven commonly-used medicinal plants on their sustainable use. Data were collected from a sample of 100 marketing agents by direct interviews andExpand
Dendrometric characteristics as indicators of pressure of Afzelia africana Sm. dynamic changes in trees found in different climatic zones of Benin
