  • Abstract Improved forest management in the tropics is hampered by the limited availability of quantitative data, especially in tropical Africa. Important management parameters such as the minimum logging diameter (MLD), the associated biological rotation age (BRA) and the timing of silvicultural treatments are too often based on merchantable dimensions and state regulations instead of ecological data and tree growth. This study combines inventory data and bootstrapped tree-ring curves of… CONTINUE READING
