Urban green area provides refuge for native small mammal biodiversity in a rapidly expanding city in Ghana
The results suggest that urbanization negatively influenced the abundance, diversity, and community composition of small mammals and efforts should be directed towards the integration of urban green areas into urban land development planning in developing countries in order to conserve local wildlife and ecological services that enhance the quality of urban life.

Impact of mining and forest regeneration on small mammal biodiversity in the Western Region of Ghana
The data suggested negative effects of mining on small mammal diversity and the restoration of species diversity and important ecological processes after rehabilitation of altered habitats, and strongly encourage deliberate conservation efforts.
Spatio-temporal variation in small mammal species richness, relative abundance and body mass reveal changes in a coastal wetland ecosystem in Ghana
Assessment of small mammal species richness, relative abundance and body mass in three habitats at the Muni-Pomadze Ramsar site of Ghana and compare these to baseline data gathered in 1997 suggest changes in the wetland ecosystem.
