Book Description:
The critical appraisal of deforestation and the methods for such investigations have recently become important issues internationally. This book examines the socio-environmental relations and environmental changes in the African savanna. Socio-environmental relations in sub-Saharan Africa: the externalities of deforestation, floods, droughts, fires, socio-political upheavals, diseases and tribally, regionally relevant wars; still capture the headlines of the global media. However, Africa is still a continent dominated by farming and the socio-environmental externalities of this include forest border change and fragmentation, reactions to rainfall and associated results, urban markets and the implications of population change. These issues may be described as perennially relevant and under-investigated. (Imprint: Nova)
