Résumé partiel
The beekeeping activity in Sudan plays a significant role in the social,economic and environmental aspects.The activity has suffered from the lack of economic evaluation due to the lack of interest officially and from the local communities.This research was conducted in eight Sudanese states(Blue Nile,White Nile,South Kordofan,West Kordofan,South Darfur,West Darfur,El-Gadarif and Sennar),which they are well-known of the high production of honey,and they have a large percentage of the forests cover for the fact that beekeeping activity is practiced widely in them.The application of forest ecosystem economic assessment provides forests manager,beekeepers and decision makers with the current information and helpful data for the purpose of efficient management for the beekeeping activity and its associated forest tree species.This research identified the most forest tree species for the beekeeping activity,estimation and evaluation of the economic value of these species from apicultural point of view.Also,a net present value(NPV)was applied for the fuelwood and honey production of acacia nilotica plantations.Additionally,the study highlighted integration of the beekeeping activity within the forest management applications.The study used purposive sampling technique to determine the target population in our study areas.During the production season of the year(2016-2017),we conducted an interview with(N=105)beekeepers in the selected eight Sudanese states using a structured questionnaire to collect the required data.Furthermore,field measurements and practical experiment were conducted to estimate woodfuel production and honey yield in El Ain Forest Reserve,which located in Shiekan locality,North Kordofan State,Sudan.Percentages were used to determine the most important forest tree species for the beekeeping activity and to estimate honey production and number of beehives per hectare for each tree species.An economic evaluation was carried out by using Return on Investment(RIO)to estimate forest tree species economic value based on the honey production.Also,a comparative analysis was conducted for the honey yield and fuelwood production of acacia nilotica to estimate their financial profitability by using Net Present Value(NPV)as decision criterion.Statistically,the analysis of variance has carried for the demographic characteristics of the beekeepers to determine their effect on the honey production process.
