Title Seedling demography for African mahogany in Benin
Downloaded 60 times
Description These data show the basal diameter (cm), heights (m) measured on individual seedlings and saplings of Khaya senegalensis (Meliaceae) yearly from 2004 to 2007. From 2005-2007, we report if individual survived or not and the previously measured basal diameter and height (if applicable). Individuals have unique (aluminum) tag number within population. A total of 12 populations were monitored for 4 years and these populations were selected randomly in two ecological regions (wet or dry) and in each region populations were equally divided between high and low foliage and bark harvesting intensities.

Title Seedling microhabitat for African mahogany in Benin
Downloaded 82 times
Description We collected four years (2004-2007) seedling and sapling microhabitat and abundance data within ten 10 x 10m plot within each of 12 population of Khaya senegalensis in Benin, West Africa. Within each plot, we collected data yearly on grass cover (%), percent plot burned, and percent cover of non-graminaceous understory species (2005-2007), and tree canopy cover (2006-2007). We also counted seedling (<2 cm) and sapling number in each plot from 2004-2006. These microhabitats data are for the same individuals as in Data 1 file (Khaya_Seedling_Demography.csv).
