Bia National Park and Resource Reserve is located near the Asempaneye village, c.60 km from Sefwi Wiawso, the district capital. The forest is transitional between moist evergreen and moist semi-deciduous. The site is surrounded by mixed farms and secondary forest. The forest was logged in 1980, which has resulted in a very broken canopy with few large trees and much low, dense vegetation. Evidence of hunting is apparent in both the National Park and Resource Reserve. Annual average precipitation is in the range 1,500–1,700 mm.
See Box and Tables 2 and 3 for key species.
