Source predictions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) concentration in water, sediment, and biota (FISHES) from Ethiope River, Delta State, Southern Nigeria

This study was carried out to predict the source of the sixteen priority polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) compounds in water, sediment, and biota samples from River Ethiope, Delta State, Southern Nigeria. The samples were extracted using soxhlet extraction and analysed with GC/FID. Results obtained for total concentration of the sixteen priority PAHs ranges from 0.185 to 3.679 mg/kg (sediment), 0.000 to 27.353...

Framework for assessing the level of stakeholders’ involvement and governance in mangrove management: Case of selected local communities in the south west coastal Atlantic Region, Cameroon

Mangrove forest management is becoming increasingly difficult due to increasing pressure from burgeoning mangrove fuel wood dependent coastal population justifying the urgent need for a multi-dimensional participatory approach that brings together all stakeholders into a broad management and governance framework. This paper investigates, analyzes and puts stakeholders’ participation within the framework for...

Species composition, habitat association, altitudinal variation and distribution of small mammals in Chato Protected Area, Western Ethiopia

Species composition, habitat association and altitudinal distribution of rodents and shrews were assessed in Chato Protected Area, Ethiopia, between July, 2015 and March, 2016. The area was stratified into five habitats based on dominant vegetation types and altitudinal zonation. The habitats were Carissa spinarum - Justicia schimperiana, Maytenus gracilipes, Podocarpus falcatus - Pyschotria orophila dominated habitats,...

Assessing the spatial distribution of bamboo species using remote sensing in Cameroon

Bamboo resource assessment has witnessed great interest in the world with very little attention in the Congo Basin forests. This study was initiated to assess bamboo species distribution in Cameroon with respect to Agroecological Zones (AEZ), using remote sensing. Forty-eight sheets of Landsat 8/Operational Land Imager (OLI) and the Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) instruments’ images were mosaiced with the Envi 5.3...
