Abstract


A study on Iroko’s regeneration was done under four seed-trees (two in a young fallow and two in a secondary forest). The aim was to know ecological factors what are influencing his spatial distribution and ecological recruitment pattern of juveniles under its seed-trees. Under each seeder, eight directions were selected according to the wind rose on 1 ha. The light, slope, and litter thickness were measured over the eight directions divided into 5m x 3m plots. For each found juvenile, its high and distance to the seeder were measured. Seventy-three juveniles were found, 47 in the young fallow and 16 in the secondary forest. More juveniles were found in young fallow under seeder 2 (28 juveniles) and few juveniles under seeder 3 in the secondary forest (5 individuals). Means of 23.5 ± 4.5 and 8 ± 3 juveniles were found in young fallow and secondary forest respectively. The overall average of juveniles per seeder was 15.75 ± 7.75 juveniles.

Author Keywords: distribution, Juveniles, Milicia excelsa, Iroko, ecological recruitment pattern.


Abstract: (french)


Une étude sur la régénération de l’Iroko a été faite Sous quatre semenciers (Deux dans une jeune jachère et deux dans une forêt secondaire). L’objectif était de déterminer les facteurs écologiques influençant la répartition et le modèle écologique de recrutement des juvéniles sous ses pieds producteurs. Sous chaque semencier, huit directions ont été retenue selon la rose du vent sur 1 ha. La lumière, la pente et l’épaisseur de la litière ont été mesurées sur les huit directions divisées en placettes de 5m x 3m. Pour chaque juvénile trouvé, sa taille et sa distance au pied producteur ont été mesurées. Soixante-trois juvéniles ont été trouvés dont, 47 dans la jachère jeune et 16 dans la forêt secondaire. Plus des juvéniles ont été trouvés dans la jachère jeune (Semencier 2), soit 28 individus et peu de juvéniles sous le semencier 3 dans la forêt secondaire, soit 5 individus. Des moyennes de 23,5 ± 4,5 et 8 ± 3 juvéniles ont été trouvées dans la jachère jeune et dans la forêt secondaire respectivement. La moyenne générale de juvéniles par semencier était de 15,75 ± 7,75 individus.

Author Keywords: répartition, Juvéniles, Milicia excelsa, Iroko, modèles écologiques de recrutement.
