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)
Climate and habitat
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 rainfallinJulyandAugustconstitutes a"majordry season", which i s a feature of the annual cycle, although the timing of i t s 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)
Between 1 and 2 ha were logged by SOFORGA Logging Consecion 3-5 years before the study
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: 1527
Years: 1989-1991
Minimum size: 10.0cm dbh
Basal area: total is 30.1846
Sampling comments: basal area for the top 10 species is 196.2 per 5 ha and this makes up 65% of the total; sites are 0.5 ha, so the total is divided by 10
