Potentials of water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes) in domestic sewage treatment with macrophytic lagoon systems in Cameroon
The ability of this plant to use nutrients from the sewage to elaborate an important phytomass added to its easy management by regular harvest make it one of the most suitable plant to be used in wastewater phytoremediation in tropical areas. Expand
The accumulation of heavy metals in biotic and abiotic components of the Olezoa wetland complex in Yaoundé - Cameroon (West Africa)
The results indicate that heavy metals accumulate in the wetland system, and that water and fish from this ecosystem are not suitable for domestic use and could be good candidates for phytoremediation of polluted aquatic ecosystems. Expand
Genetic Diversity and Core Collection for Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) Cultivars from Cameroon as Revealed by SSR Markers
Analysis of molecular variance revealed that most of the genetic variations are found within geographic region, resulting in high gene flow (Nm > 4 individuals) and local varieties had significantly more alleles than exotic varieties. Expand
Heavy metal concentrations in some biotic and abiotic components of the olezoa wetland complex (Yaoundé-Cameroon, West Africa)
The quantity of heavy metals in this wetland complex is considerable and will constitute a potential hazard for biota and four plants appeared to be good candidates for phytoremediation of water metal pollution. Expand
Effects of salinity on growth, water content and distribution of Na + and K + in the organs of Avicennia germinans L. seedlings
Adaptation of mature leaves to the salt stress was found to be associated with succulence, which was achieved by the absorption of large quantities of water and K +, and suggested that these ions might be the principal mineral elements responsible for the osmotic adjustment in the resistance of A. germinans to salinity stress.

Macrophyte diversity in polluted and non-polluted wetlands in Cameroon
Inventory of macrophyte species in four wetlands in the Olezoa drainage basin in Yaounde, two wetlands in the Bamenda central town, and two wetlands in the rural areas in the Menoua Division, wasExpand
Salinity effect on seedling growth, water, sodium and potassium distributions in the mangrove species ( Avicennia germinans L. (Avicenniaceae)) in semi controlled conditions.
The effect on plant growth of NaCl concentrations in soil, under semi-controlled conditions, water content and monovalent cations (Na+ and K+) distributions in seedlings of Avicennia germinans wereExpand
Wetland vegetation colonization and expansion in small impoundments in Yaounde, Cameroon, West Africa
Temporal changes in the pattern and distribution of tropical wetland vegetation in four small impoundments over a 28-year period were documented for a wetland ecosystem in the Olezoa drainage basinExpand
Prevalence of potato viruses on potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) grown in the Western Highlands of Cameroon
Abstract Solanum tuberosum L. is considered by the Food and Agricultural Organization as one of the alternative food crops that can help to fight against hunger in the world. However, this cropExpand
