Growth potential of economically important rattan species

Countries: Cameroon

This project aims to examine the structure, shape, and growth patterns of fast-growing rattans to draw conclusions and recommendations as to the ideal conditions in which to cultivate rattan, to illuminate how fast-growing rattans make a come-back in Cameroon and elsewhere.

The role of Fokabs in the project is to:

  • study and analyse the growth pattern (growth rate, bio-physical interaction in the ecosystem) of rattan species in different agro-ecological zones.
  • Estimate yields and necessary measures for the sustainable management and harvesting.




Duration: 08/2020 - 03/2021    

Client: INBAR
