Advances in knowledge of processes in soil–tree–crop interactions in parkland systems in the West African Sahel: A review
The ‘parklands’ that form the most widespread farming systems in the Sahelian zone of West Africa are farming systems in which annual crops are grown under scattered trees preserved from the natural vegetation by farmers ...
Cereal yield response to conservation agriculture practices in drylands of West Africa: A quantitative synthesis
To address the decline in crop productivity in the drylands ofWest Africa, many initiatives have focused on combating soil degradation. Various practices including (1) parkland trees associated with crops, (2) coppicing ...
Relationships between soil seed banks and above-ground vegetation along a disturbance gradient in the W National Park trans-boundary biosphere reserve, West Africa
Aims Vegetation succession depends on the availability of suitable propagules in the soils, thus knowledge of soil seed banks is essential for formulating effective strategies for restoring the vegetation of degraded sites. ...
