Barnes, R. F. W. et al. 
Decaying elephant [Loxodonta africana] dung-piles were observed at 3 sites in the lowland forests of southern Ghana in 1993-94. Time to disappearance was inversely related to rainfall in the month of deposition. The monthly survival of each age-class decreased with age and was inversely proportional to rainfall in the month of deposition. A simulation revealed that if elephant numbers and defa ...

Sustainable farming practices. Towards reducing the expansion of the Forest Savanna Transition Zone of the Sekyere-West and Ejura-Sekyedumase districts of the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
Akwag, A. A. et al. 
The Sekyere- West and Jura-Empyreuma districts of the Ashantii Region of Ghana which were formally covered under tropical rainforest with cash crops such as cocoa, oil palm and citrus dominating the cropping system, are changing into the Forest Savanna Transition Zone (FSTZ). Food crops like cassava, maize, plantain, cocoyam and vegetables are taking over, as well as livestock farming. With th ...

Models for basal area dynamics of mixed tropical forest: neo-tropical experience and prospects for application in Ghana
Alder, D. et al. 
Stand projection which is not corrected for stand-level increment and mortality tends to overestimate achievable yields in natural forest. Two recent models, SIRENA (a model driven by stand basal area dynamics from Costa Rica, and based only on a limited data set from a single remeasurement of permanent plots) and CAFOGROM.XLS (based on a much stronger set of basal area dynamics data from Braz ...

Wood supply and demand in Ghana: sustaining the wood industry through the creation of new resource base.
Amankwah, G. 
The ability of the wood based industry to continuously contribute to the country's socio-economic development is linked to the availability of adequate and sustained raw material base to provide logs for its industrial needs. This paper seeks to discuss the supply and demand of timber resources of Ghana in an attempt to justify the need for the creation of new resource base to supplement exist ...

Some fertilizer experiments with kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) in Ghana. 1. Preliminary studies on the effects of different levels of nitrogen on the growth and fibre yield of kenaf.
Amankwatia, Y. O. et al. 
In a field trial in 1971-2, sulphate of ammonia was applied at 0, 34, 67, 101 134 or 168 ng N/ha to kenaf cv. A63-440 at Ejura, Kwadaso and Nyankpala in the Northern Region of Ghana. Plant height increased with increasing N application and was greater in the savanna (Nyankpala) and derived-savanna (Ejura) zones than in the forest zone (Kwadaso). Stem diameter increased with N application and w ...
