Understory species diversity, regeneration and recruitment potential of sacred groves in south west Nigeria

8 days ago   |   By Springer

Abstract
Global species extinction rates due to forest conversions are increasing. Ecologists, conservationists and governments have adopted various conservation methods. Sacred grove is one conservation option that has gained attention in recent time. We assessed understory species diversity, regeneration and recruitment potentials of four sacred groves in southwestern Nigeria. Overstory tree species were inventoried in eight 800 m 2 temporary sample plots, systematically laid along two transects of 1000 m each. Understory tree species were assessed in 100 m 2 plots for saplings and 25 m...

Species and functional diversity of macrofungi from protected areas in mountain forest ecosystems of Southern Luzon, Philippines

8 days ago   |   By Springer

Abstract
Fungi and their functions are among the least studied component of the ecosystem such that not more than 10% were named based on global conservative species estimate. In the Philippines, the species described do not reflect on documentation and conservation efforts amidst threat of forest degradation and climate change. This study investigated the current macrofungal diversity in parts of three important protected mountain forest ecosystems in Southern Tagalog Region in the Philippines: Mount Makiling Forest Reserve , Mount Banahaw-San Cristobal Protected Landscape , and Quezon...
