The case of Prunus africana (J. D. Hook) Kalkman - lessons from a non-timber forest product from Mount Cameroon



International Tree Crops Journal 10(4): 337-346



Bark from Prunus africana trees in moist forests on Mt. Cameroon produces a medicinal extractive that is traded internationally with high economic significance. Because sustainable bark harvesting has been widely abandoned since the early 1990s and because the economic status of the rural population has deteriorated in the area, illegal and destructive debarking became common.
