Description

This article is written in French

  • The authors conducted a study on Gnetum africanum, a species of commercial interest in Central African forests.
  • They investigated the importance of light in Gnetum africanum dispersal and regeneration by analysing the effect of canopy gaps on Gnetum africanum in different forest types.
  • The authors determined that Gnetum africanum is a shade tolerant species that needs shade to germinate and prefers low light levels as juveniles.
