Effect of exotic tree plantations and site management on plant diversity



Effect of exotic tree plantations and site management on plant diversity



Effect of exotic tree plantations on plant diversity and biological soil fertility in the Congo Savanna: with special reference to eucalypts: 9-18



Species richness, species behaviour and stand parameters were analysed under fast-growing tree plantations (Eucalyptus hybrid, Acacia auriculiformis and Pinus caribaea) in Congo and compared with the characteristics of nearby secondary forest patches. Exotic timber plantations initiated an important floristic change from the grass-dominated vegetation of native savanna toward undergrowth characterized by the importance of woody plants.
