Seasonal fodder production responses of 5 shrub legumes (Centrosema arenarium, Desmodium strigillosum, Desmodium velutinum, Phyllodium pulchellum and Tadehagi triquetrum) and 5 tree legumes (Albizia gummifera, Berlinia grandiflora, Albizia niopoides, Bauhinia monandra and Inga edulis) to pruning heights ranging from 15 to 75 cm were evaluated during the main-wet, minor-wet, and dry seasons of 1993 and 1994 in the forest-savanna transition zone of West Africa.
