Description

This article is written in French.

  • The authors provide a review of the current (limited) knowledge of soil seed banks in African tropical forests.
  • They argue that increased knowledge of soil seed banks will lead to better understanding of forest regeneration and therefore more successful reforestation efforts.
  • Finally, the authors call for better characterization of seed banks based on forest community, as this could aid reforestation and sustainable forest management efforts in African tropical forests.
