Description

This article is written in French.

  • The author describes forest dynamics in the Ivory Coast. 
  • He discusses primarily forest regeneration as a process disturbed by perturbations that leave a gap in the canopy.
  • He notes that leading up to these disturbances, forested areas build up seed banks.
  • The author concludes that characteristics of the disturbance determine future forest vegetation.
