Cordia africana grows in the Middle East and Africa. It is a multipurpose tree with several groups of insect pests that affect the seeds, fruits and leaves of this species. The aim of this study was to identify the causative agent responsible for leaf defoliation in Raya Azebo District and Wondo Genet College of Forestry and Natural Resource in Ethiopia. Two leaf defoliators viz. Dictyla poecilla and Compseuta brevicarinata were found associated with leaves of C. africana that were raised in…

Maintenance of genetic diversity in Cordia africana Lam., a declining forest tree species in Ethiopia
TLDR
The observed patterns and levels of genetic variation within and among the populations indicate that efficient gene flow via pollen and seed is likely to be the main factor contributing to the maintenance of genetic diversity in natural and disturbed conditions.
