Fuelwood collection and its impacts on a protected tropical mountain forest in Uganda

Brief Summary: 
Local communities who live close to protected tropical forests often depend on them for woodfuel, their main source of energy.

We assessed the effects of fuelwood collection on the forest of Mt Elgon National Park (Uganda).
