Textual summaries are presented of the ecology of most forest trees which in Ghana attain 5cm dbh. For rarer and smaller trees, a briefer entry is given. 1260 charts are included, summarising aspects of the ecology in Ghana of 210 of the most important species (including some few-species groups). A series of five charts summarises abundance across Ghana's forest zone, stratified into 21 broad landscape and forest type categories. A sixth chart summarises for each of the 210 important species trends of crown exposure. This is an invaluable reference for all involved with West African forest use and conservation.
