Country: Gabon

Coordinate: 0° 10' S, 11° 35' E
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: coordinate and altitude range of 100 to 200 m for the reserve are based on Voysey et al. (1999, Journal of Tropical Ecology)
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Protection: national/state park
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: selective logging
WMT: 28.0
CMT: 23.6
MAP: 1532.0
Habitat comments: "Consistently low rainfall in July and August constitutes a "major dry season", which is a feature of the annual cycle, although the timing of its onset and its duration varies between years; December to February are generally relatively dry months, but no distinct second dry season can be defined" (p. 11)
"The forest had been logged once, 20-25 years previously, for one tree species, Aucoumea klaineana which was extracted at an intensity of about one tree" per ha
climate data are for the reserve and are from Tutin et al. (1991, Journal of Tropical Ecology)
Life forms: trees
Sites: 1
Site length: 5000.000
Site width: 1.000
Sampling methods: line transect
Sample size: 1039
Years: 1989-1991
Minimum size: 10.0cm dbh
Basal area: total is 21.4051
Sampling comments: basal area for the top 10 species is 169.1 per 5 ha and this makes up 79% of the total; sites are 0.5 ha, so the total is divided by 10
