Enagnon Bruno Lokonon

Benin

Benin is a moderately forested country with vegetation dominated by savannahs mosaics where degradation of forests is still a major concern. The loss of forests was estimated to 75,000 ha/year between 1990 and 2011 (FAO, 2011). Land clearing for agriculture, charcoal production and overgrazing are often referred to as the main drivers of forest degradation in Benin.

The problem of forest pests of the bark beetle (BB) has generated concern among the forest communities of Oaxaca, since forest pests impose economic, ecological and social costs on the communities. Given this, we have observed how the areas that present only species of the genus Pinus can be devastated almost completely after BB attacks.
