Geography
Country: Gabon

Coordinate: 0° 30' S, 11° 30' E
Geography comments: Lope Reserve in located between 0-1ºS and 11º-12ºE, aproximatelly (estimated from Fig.1.2; p.5), involving four provinces (Moyen-Ogooue, Ngounie, Ogooue-Ivindo and Ogooue-Lolo).
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: selective logging
MAT: 25.0
WMT: 29.5
CMT: 21.7
MAP: 1536.0
Dry months: 2
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).
1 ha of forest was logged by SOFORGA Logging Consecion 10-15 years before the study.
Methods
Life forms: trees
Sites: 1
Site length: 5000.000
Site width: 1.000
Sampling methods: line transect
Sample size: 1325
Years: 1989-1991
Minimum size: 10.0cm dbh
Basal area: total is 24.7600
Sampling comments: basal area for the top 10 species is 185.7 per 5 ha and this makes up 75% of the total; sites are 0.5 ha, so the total is divided by 10
