The Central African tropical humid forest covers 280 million ha and is the largest of its kind in the world after the Amazon (Talbott, 1993; FAO, 1995). Within this region, the 26 million ha of the Cameroon’s humid forest zone (HFZ) contain some of Africa’s most diverse ecosystems. (Alpert, 1993) and have provided a large number of non-wood (plant and animal) forest products (NWFPs) to the local populations (Koppert et al., 1993; Doucet and Koufani, 1997; Ngala, 1997).
