Abstract:

The study of the potential of Congo's spontaneous flora in biofuel resources is based on the parameters of ecological structure. 11 species (22.9%) are present on the 48 main retained by PROTA 14. The spatial distribution of the species shows that only the Bétou UFA gathers all the species. The best represented in the different forest areas are Ongokea gore, Pentaclethra eetveldeana, Pentaclethra macrophylla and Pycnanthus angolensis. Except for the Conkouati-Douli National Park, the Lossi Sanctuary and the Aubeville Forest, where there are some peculiarities, these species are characterized by low densities ranging from 0.001 to 5 individuals.ha-1 and basal areas generally less than 1 m².ha-1. The diametric structure is on the whole erratic type, marker of insufficient regeneration. Phytoecological data reveal that this forest cannot support sustained industrial exploitation in the production of second-generation biofuels. These species, which constitute an energy source for the disseminating agents, are 73% nutritive and 82% phytotherapeutic to humans. These multi-purpose species are at the same time of interest to the wood and craft industries, while being non-timber forest products of prime choice.
