Sommer and.S.S. Ajayi, in Wildlife Conservation in Africa, Abstract. This chapter is on multipurpose forest management with ethnomedicine, agroforestry, and bushmeat production at the Okomu Forest Reserve in Nigeria.
Okomu Forest Reserve is situated in the lowland tropical rain forest of Edo State of southwestern Nigeria. But, this book is very useful for someone, like me, who just wants a basic understanding, in order to appreciate the rain forest when visiting. It describes how things work in the tropical rain forests of South and Central America.
