Inventory of Bonou and Itchèdè forests in south east of Benin
The average density of trees was significantly different for a probability level of 5% between the two forests (316 trees / ha in the Bonou’s forest and 171 trees / ha in the Itchèdè’s forest). As for value species (Cola millenii, Dialium guineense, and Afzelia africana) their dendrological parameters showed no significant difference between the Itchèdè and Bonou’s forests. The tree-density of individuals (dbh ˃ 10cm) of these species was relatively low (16-254 individuals/ha) whichever is the forest considered, which is an indicator of risk of extinction of these species.
