Scientific Categorization of Aspects of Flora and Soil Attributes of A Typical Watershed
  • Description
  • E-Book
  • Author(s) Information

The book “scientific categorization of aspects of flora and soil attributes of a typical tropical watershed” is primarily concerned with portraying most parts of tropical Africa exactly the way they are, as far as watershed/ forest conservation is concerned.

The point that the book is out to establish is that every state governor in Nigeria ought to have at least a standard forest reserve, and every University Vice Chancellor ought to establish a botanical/zoological garden in his institution.

The aim of this research work was to characterize and identify those factors that were responsible for the degradation of the watershed.

The objectives of the study were to:

1. Identify the species composition and diversity;

2. Determine the economic relevance of the species;

3. Determine the Importance values of the species;

4. Determine the effects of seasons, land use and relief on Importance Value Indices (IVI) of the species;

5. Determine the effects of seasons, land use and relief on selected soil properties.
