Sapelli (Entandrophragma cylindricum) and tali (Erythrophleum suaveolens) are among the most important timber
species harvested from Congo Basin forests. They also host edible caterpillars, Imbrasia oyemensis and Cirina
forda, respectively, which are important to the nutrition and income of rural and urban populations. This study
evaluated the density of these tree species within a 10 km radius around each of 4 villages and in the 2012
annual cutting areas of two timber concessions in the region of Kisangani (DRC). Sapelli and tali trees

They build upon the framework of the Community Biodiversity Management approach in which three outcomes are sought; (1) community empowerment and social equity, (2) biodiversity conservation and (3) livelihood development (Sthapit et al. 2016).

In Slovenia, the Natura 2000 network covers 35.5% of its territory or 286 areas, encompassing 10 forest habitat types. The majority of indicators for the assessment of the conservation status and changes of forest habitat types are to be estimated within the forest management planning framework. In this paper, a hierarchical concept of forest habitat types monitoring in Pohorje Mts (810 km2) was examined and presented, based on landscape structure and position of habitat types in this structure.
