Folk Classification, Perception, and Preferences of Baobab Products in West Africa: Consequences for Species Conservation and Improvement
Folk Classification, Perception, and Preferences of Baobab Products in West Africa: Consequences for Species Conservation and Improvement.The present study is a component of a baobab (Adansonia…

The results indicate some degree of physical isolation of the populations collected in the different climatic zones and suggest a substantial amount of genetic structuring between the analysed populations of baobab.
Ecological diversity and pulp, seed and kernel production of the Baobab (Adansonia digitata) in Benin
The morphology and productivity of individual baobabs varied significantly from one zone to another, and the zones with high values of potential evaporation, rainfall, relative humidity, temperature, pHwater and percentage of fine silt are associated with a low seed and fruit pulp production.
Natural variation in fruit characteristics, seed germination and seedling growth of Adansonia digitata L. in Benin
There were significant differences in fruit characteristics not only between climatic zones but also between individuals from the same zone and within-trees; and some strategies for efficient ex situ conservation of baobab in Benin are proposed.

This study highlights how gender, local availability, ethnicity and community location interact to influence the utilization value of the S. birrea species and influences the use pattern of the species within and between communities.
Spatial genetic structuring of baobab (Adansonia digitata, Malvaceae) in the traditional agroforestry systems of West Africa.
It is demonstrated that relatively high levels of genetic structuring are present in baobab at both large and within-population level, which was unexpected in regard to its dispersal by bats and the influence of human exchange of seeds.
Characterisation of Afzelia africana Sm. habitat in the Lama forest reserve of Benin

There was a noticeable significant change in the level and quality of pressure between trees found in the different climatic zones in the country in the sense that the lower the height of the trees, the more severe the level of pressure exerted.

Ethnic differences in use values and use patterns of the species were evident in this study in Northern Benin, where the species widely grows.
A Multidisciplinary Approach to the Theory and Practice of Sustainable Development
Quantitative ethnobotany researches can contribute much to guide biodiversity conservation, especially in developing countries. Our study presents a step-by-step approach to identify priority species…
