Human activities such as agriculture and logging as well as climate change cause the extinction of animal, plant and fungal species. In order to save the biodiversity to widespread extinction, it is necessary to undertake potential actions to protect their habitat.
Thus, this project aims to:
- Enrich the forests area of occupancy of endangered fungal species in Benin by ectomycorrhizal tree species,
- Evaluate the distribution and demography of the populations of three fungi species highly endangered in Benin specially in the gallery forest of Bassila, gallery forest Kota and Birni forest reserve and
- Establish an educational program for the conservation and sustainable for the fungi species threatened in Benin.
