Species Info

  • Khaya senegalensis

Description

  • The authors investigated a relationship between exploitation of economically important mahogany in Benin and the species genetic diversity.
  • While their study did not find a negative impact on harvesting to genetic diversity, previous studies have found negative impacts on reproductive potential and overall population fitness.
