Habitat comments: "medium-altitude tropical rain forest" comprised of "moist evergreen forests, woodland thickets, swamps, grasslands, colonising shrubs and regenerating forests"
logged completely in the 1970s, covered with "banana plantations, elephant grass-dominated areas and grasslands with Combretum spp." by the 1990s, and replanted with native vegetation between 3 and 8 years before the study; classed as secondary forest because the plots are consistently called "restoration forests"
