Assisted Natural Regeneration is one of the silvicultural tools employed to combat deforestation and degradation; it consists of a variation of enrichment planting which was first developed for tropical forests with poor natural regeneration. Even though the technology is based on the ecological principle of secondary forest succession, utilizes natural...
This publications includes a selection of solutions offered by African marine and terrestrial protected areas to reduce climate vulnerability and increase natural and community resilience. It demonstrates that effective nature-based solutions to climate change can be implemented through local and regional actions that bring benefits to both biodiversity conservation and...
As pressure is increasing on diminishing medicinal plant sup- plies, constructive resource management and conservation actions must be identified, based upon a clear understanding of the surrounding medicinal plant use. This study seeks to respond to three cen- tral questions: (1) What are the causes behind the depletion of wild populations of...
