Attached to the Faculty of Science of Bangui University, the Plant and Fungal Biodiversity Laboratory (LBVF) team studies plant and fungal diversity, structural characterisation and vegetation dynamics, placing importance on local traditional knowledge on plants and fungi.

The conducted work has made it possible:

  • (i) to learn more about the diversity of plants and fungi and their different uses (medicinal, biological control, food, ornamental, etc.);
  • (ii) to understand post-exploitation forest dynamics through demographic studies and spatial analyses (theses by Denis Beina, Olivia Semboli, Arnot Koplita, funded by the Department of Cultural Action and Cooperation).

These studies contribute to the success of the DYNAFAC collective’s activities.

Through its research programmes, the LBVF contributes to the success of the DYNAFAC initiative.
