CIFOR–ICRAF publishes over 750 publications every year on agroforestry, forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy and much more – in multiple languages.

CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests, landscapes, people and the planet.

We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

Replication Data for: Drivers of farmer-managed natural regeneration in the Sahel. Lessons for restoration. Scientific reports

This dataset underlies the statistical analyses central to the publication Lohbeck et al 'Drivers of farmer-managed natural regeneration in the Sahel. Lessons for restoration', published in Scientific Reports (DOI: 10.1038/s41598-020-70746-z68689791-6eec-4311-a341-bcf0cf5b1e06). The data is based on a field inventory using the Land Degradation Surveillance Framework (LDSF) methodology (see LDSF fieldguide under 'related publications', and methods in the publication in scientific reports). In addition, a detailed inventory of the trees (in the plot) and the regeneration (in the subplot) has been carried out. In addition to that functional traits have been measured for the most common species among the regeneration. Functional traits measurements followed standardized protocols (See Perez-Harguindeguy et al 2013 and methods in the publication). Functional traits at the species level were scaled to the plot level using community-weighted means, those are the values represented in the data table (see methods in publication for details). Soil variables are predicted using MIR spectroscopy (see methods in publication for details).
