Influence of socioeconomic factors on the biodiversity of woody species in agroforestry parkland systems: a case study in two villages in the central plateau of Burkina Faso


, : Influence of socioeconomic factors on the biodiversity of woody species in agroforestry parkland systems: a case study in two villages in the central plateau of Burkina Faso. Schweizerische Zeitschrift fur Forstwesen 157(1): 17-23

Agroforestry parklands face strong pressure from the increasing population of the region. The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF Sahel) started a biodiversity project with the objective of developing methods to conserve biodiversity and to improve the situation of the poor rural population. In this context, the present study examined the influence of land use unit and the prosperity classes of farmers on the biodiversity of woody species.

The destruction of cartilage in patients with osteoarthritis occurs due to an imbalance between matrix synthesis and degradation. Cartilage degradation is induced by the activation of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). Therefore, this study was con...
