    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…

    Spatio-temporal dynamics of suitable habitats for Detarium microcarpum Guill. & Perr. (Caesalpiniaceae), a priority food tree species in Benin (West A…

    Modeling Earth Systems and Environment

    Detarium microcarpum (Caesalpiniaceae) is a priority, multipurpose, and indigenous food tree species in West Africa. However, data related to its efficient conservation and sustainable use, through changing ecological environments, are still lacking. Thus, species occurrence records were combined wi…

    Agroforestry Systems

    Predicted effects of climate change (CC) on plant species distribution have raised concerns on their conservation and domestication. Appropriate stand density may enhance species ability to adapt to CC. Therefore, combining species distribution modeling (SDM) and spatial pattern of density should pr…

    How far can climate changes help to conserve and restore Garcinia kola Heckel, an extinct species in the wild in Benin (West Africa)

    International Journal of Biodiversity and Conservation

    A study was conducted to assess how well climate changes can help to conserve and restore Garcinia kola Heckel in the Protected Area Network (PAN) and in urban areas in Benin. To achieve this, occurrence data from GBIF was used and the environmental data from AfriClim was used in order to model the …

    Ecological niche modeling and strategies for the conservation of Dialium guineense Willd. (Black velvet) in West Africa

    International Journal of Biodiversity and Conservation

    Dialium guineense is a multipurpose species useful in many respects. It is used in agroforestry and the trade of most of its organs is source of income for rural populations. Despite the high interests of this species to populations, we do not know much about how its spatial distribution could be im…
