Ecoclimatic factors and biogeochemical cycles in dense dry evergreen forest in Muhulu, southern Shaba

Ecoclimatic factors and biogeochemical cycles in dense dry evergreen forest in Muhulu, southern Shaba

Geo Eco Trop 14(1-4): 159 pp.

Forest ecology and nutrient cycling were studied at Luiswichi, a site about 28 km NE of Lubumbashi, Zaire. Within close proximity in the study area, three vegetation types were present: dense, dry, evergreen tropical forest (which survives in the area only as fragmented stands, including one of 4.7 ha); open tropical forest; and savanna. The three types have only 5% of species in common. The dry evergreen forest is dominated by Entandrophragma delevoyi.
