Biodiversity in Dry Semi-Deciduous Forest Zone: Comparison between Natural Forest, Cleared Forest and Teak Plantations in Ghana

The study makes preliminary inferences about the biodiversity changes associated with plantation establishment (in this case in the dry semi-deciduous forest zone) in Ghana which may also identify the species most vulnerable to fragmentation. e objectives are as follows:
1. To examine and compare the amphibian and bu er y communities in a natural forest, cleared forest and teak plantations.
2. To examine and compare the diversity and abundance of macrofungi.
3. To assess and compare the diversity and abundance of seedlings and saplings.
