Project Green: Ghana rainforest expedition ’89

Stuart Nash

Six separate but related fieldwork studies by Cambridge University undergraduates centred on a comparison of primary forest with secondary rainforest selectively logged 17 years ago. Entomological research included species abundance, diversity and behaviour studies. An avifauna survey was conducted including a calling bird survey and a species inventory. Finally, the influence of local villagers on the forest and logging operation of AT & P were documented.
