    Spatial distribution and impacts of climate change on Milicia excelsa in Benin, West Africa

    Journal of Forestry Research

    African teak (Milicia excelsa (Welw.) C.C. Berg) is an endangered multi-use species. Understanding the impact of climate change on the distribution of this species may improve the ability to anticipate or recognize its decline or expansion and to take appropriate conservation measures if necessary. …

    Ecological niche information supports taxonomic delimitation of Irvingia gabonensis and I. wombolu (Irvingiaceae)

    South African Journal of Botany

    African bush mango trees (Irvingiaceae) are priority food trees in West and Central Africa. There are bitter- and sweet-fruited species, which are difficult to distinguish based on morphological characters. This has led to a debate about their correct taxonomic status. Furthermore, it is unclear whe…

    Developing policy-relevant biodiversity indicators: lessons learnt from case studies in Africa

    Environmental Research Letters

    There is an increasing need for monitoring schemes that help understand the evolution of the global biodiversity crisis and propose solutions for the future. Indicators, including temporal baselines, are crucial to measure the change in biodiversity over time, to evaluate progress towards its conser…
