Description

This article is written in French.

  • The authors explore the literature on two native tree species of commercial value in central Africa: Milicia excelsa and Milicia regia.
  • Known locally as iroko, the authors note that exploitation of the trees have led to a decrease in its abundance.
  • Finally, the authors argue that because the species are recognized as having economic importance, more research is needed on the species' ecologies in order to sustainably manage them.

Geographical Region

  • Central Africa
