This Rapid Assessment Program Bulletin reports the findings of an expedition in 2003 into four forest reserves in southwestern Ghana that were recently designated as globally significant biodiversity areas by the Ghanaian government. The survey documented more than 1,300 plant and animal species (with one amphibian species new to science) and makes specific recommendations for conserving the biological resources of these areas."
