Improving Livelihoods and Nutrition in Sub-Saharan Africa through the Promotion of Indigenous and Exotic Fruit Production in Smallholders' Agroforestry Systems: A Review
SUMMARY The cultivation of indigenous and exotic fruits for sub-Saharan Africa's domestic markets can bring increased revenues for smallholders and improve the diets of local consumers. There are,
Determining Sources of Diversity in Cultivated and Wild Lablab purpureus Related to Provenance of Germplasm by using Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism
The molecular analysis identified forms that were collected in the wild in India but were genetically placed intermediate between wild and cultivated forms and support the suggested pathway of domestication and distribution of L. purpureus from Africa to Asia.
What is the relevance of smallholders’ agroforestry systems for conserving tropical tree species and genetic diversity in circa situm, in situ and ex situ settings? A review
Smallholders’ agroforests may be valuable for conserving tropical trees through three main mechanisms. First, trees planted and/or retained by farmers in agricultural landscapes where wild stands
Charcoal production and strategies to enhance its sustainability in Kenya
In sub-Saharan Africa, 72 per cent of urban and 98 per cent of rural households use fuelwood for energy. In Kenya use of charcoal in urban areas has risen by 64 per cent in two decades. Despite the
Nutrient composition of selected indigenous fruits from sub-Saharan Africa.
The results of this study emphasise the need to generate more high-quality data on a wider spectrum of components of the selected indigenous fruits in sub-Saharan Africa.
