Abstract:Attempt to determine man's role in promoting erosion in the headwaters of the Umsweswe river in central Rhodesia. First, an examination is made of the history of early settlement and agriculture in Mondoro which includes the headwaters of the Umsweswe river to determine if there is any qualitative evidence to suggest man's involvement in erosion. Secondly, through a variable describing human pressure on the land, a statistical test is made of the relationship between F gully growth and man. Archival records, interviews and experimental observation provide the main sources of information. Fig., map, notes, tab.
