The main goals of our study is to verify the existence and extent of niche conservatism in three closely related species within the genus Lepilemur, and to draw conclusions on the applicability of conservation protocols to a broader array of Lepilemur species. The genus is an exemplary of the mammalian fauna of Madagascar which high biological diversity is under increasingly severe threat from anthropogenic degradation of its forest habitats. This study focuses particularly on three poorly-known Lepilemur taxa: L. sahamalazensis, L. dorsalis and L. mittermeieri, uplisted into one of the threatened categories of the IUCN Red List.The genus is particularly negatively affected by deforestation and habitat fragmentation and all have a small distribution range, fairly small total populations. Their pattern of distribution appears to have been established through vicariant speciation, probably driven by changes in the configuration of the hydrographic system. Such a pattern permits to expect a high level of niche conservatism. We present here our preliminary results of an exploratory mission on 1) evaluation of Lepilemur abundance in forest patches on the Ampasindava Peninsula, the Sahamalaza Peninsula and the Manongarivo Special Reserve 2) sleeping sites characteristics of the three studied species.

A l’heure de l’attribution des premières forêts communautaires au Gabon, de multiples questions surgissent et attendent de manière urgente une réponse de la part de l’Etat. Le présent article se penche sur l’une d’entre elles, à savoir la superposition des permis d’exploitation (minier, forestier) avec l’espace utilisé traditionnellement par les communautés locales et candidates à l’obtention d’une forêt communautaire. Quelques situations rencontrées sur le terrain sont présentées et discutées. Il est urgent qu’un réel aménagement du territoire voie le jour au Gabon, qui détermine la place de chaque activité, hiérarchise l’affectation de l’espace et détermine le cas échéant les conditions de « cohabitation » de plusieurs permis.

Les provinces du Nord Kivu et du Maniema, à l’est de la R.D.Congo sont confrontés à la destruction de l’environnement, particulièrement dans les parties des territoires de Walikale, Lubero, Punia et Lubutu. Alors que les forêts riches en biodiversité sont importantes tant pour l’Etat du fait de leur valeur économique que pour les communautés locales pour leur développement, les menaces qui pèsent sur ces dernières sont légions. Les plus importantes sont les mines, les guerres, le foncier, la légitimité et la légalité, etc. Face à cette situation, en 1998 les communautés locales de ces territoires ont décidé d’initier un nouveau modèle de gestion communautaire des ressources naturelles par la création de réserves gérées par les populations locales. L’objectif de ce modèle est la gestion de biodiversité associée au développement endogène, conduite par une l’Union des Associations de Conservation de Gorilles pour le Développement Communautaire à l’Est de la R.D.Congo (UGADEC). Quinze ans après le début de cette initiative les résultats sont prometteurs. Des actions de conservation ont été mises en place et un développement rural amorcé. Cependant, pour que la gestion communautaire devienne une réalité, il importe qu’un partenariat durable soit établi entre les différents acteurs liés à la gestion des réserves communautaires de l’est.

The reproductive ecology of Coula edulis (Olacaceae), source of a highly valuable non-timber product for African populations, has been investigated on a large tree sample size in a Gabonese forest for a 3-year period, in order to propose options for its domestication. Reproduction is annual and the minimum tree diameter for flowering was 10.6 cm while the diameter for regular fructification was 23 cm. The annual diameter increment (ADI; mean = 0.22 cm year-1) was affected by crown exposure, but not by initial tree diameter or fruit production. Tree diameter influenced fruiting frequency and fruit production. There was a strong correlation between fruit production of 2011 and 2012 (Pearson's r = 0.85; P < 0.001), suggesting a high heritability of that trait. Phenotypical selection should be performed prior to any propagation activity. Moreover, as most of C. edulis fruits were sterile (64 %), we propose that sylvicultural strategies should be based on vegetative propagation. [less ▲]

Human impacts on natural tropical forests in Central Africa are to a large extent linked to shifting cultivation and fuelwood extraction in peri-urban areas. This is especially true around the city of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), which is why research was conducted in 2010 by the Makala Project in the city’s fuelwood supply basin. The aims were to adapt and test Assisted Natural Regeneration (ANR), improve slash-andburn crop systems and contribute to the enrichment of forest fallows. Prior to slashing and burning, useful trees were selected for protection. Then, during cropping, the germination and multiplication of stump shoots and root suckers from existing local forest species were promoted by selective weeding, thinning, and pruning. Monitoring of the test areas found low survival rates for old trees conserved before the land was slashed and burned, due to the difficulty of controlling the fires. This means that the technique can only be used for the edges of plots, by gradually enriching hedgerows. In contrast, stumps shoots and root suckers from natural forest species protected by ANR during agricultural weeding grew rapidly inside the plots, thus rapidly establishing woody fallows without the need for costly inputs or heavy labour. In 2014, three and a half years after slashing and burning, biodiversity and biomass in these fallows is greater than in non-ANR fallows. Better charcoal and crop productivity and a slower rate of forest transition into savannah are expected. However, social acceptance, a critical factor in the large-scale dissemination of this innovation, must be investigated in the light of potential developments in traditional and modern land tenure rights.
