A team of biodiversity scientists surveyed the Ghanaian Ajenjua Bepo and Mamang River Forest Reserves in 2006 to gather information about their biological value. This volume presents their surveys of local taxa, including plants, butterflies, fish, birds, and mammals. Researchers discovered twelve species of katydids new to science, and their findings demonstrate the relative richness of the Mamang reserve when compared to the smaller, degraded site at Ajenjua Bepo.
