The forests of West Africa are advanced, appealing and lower than persevered risk of over exploitation. This monograph, in its moment variation, is still the single accomplished resource of knowledge on economically vital woodland bugs in West Africa. Many pest bugs mentioned during this e-book have the aptitude to vastly regulate the usage of those invaluable tropical forests.

As water percolates through the canopy and soil zone, its chemistry is altered. B-20). Both phosphorus and DOC concentrations in soil solution increase dramatically in the forest floor, but rapidly decrease to concentrations (~3 mg C/ liter) in the mineral soil, which are similar to stream-water concentrations (Wood 1980; McDowe111982). The P and DOC from forest floor soil solution are rapidly adsorbed by the upper B-horizon of the mineral soil, which thereby provides a powerful regulating mechanism for stream or drainage water chemistry and watershed-ecosystem outputs.

The record of measurements at Hubbard Brook is the longest in North America. Whereas at some other sites there has been some increase or decrease in pH values with time, only small changes have been observed at Hubbard Brook (see Likens et al. 1979, 1984). 10) decline in annual volume-weighted H+ concentration after 1970- B.
