Abstract:The main focus of this account - based on fieldwork in 1972/73 - is, by means of analyzing a series of behavioral characteristics observed in the honey-collecting activities of the Tongwe, to clarify the following points: 1) How the Tongwe depend on the natural resources of the woodland savannas; 2) Comparative analysis of the ecological conditions with respect to honey-collecting between two major survey sites: 1. the village of Ilundi, located in the Lugufu Basin, and 2. Musebese village located in the Masito Escarpment on the edge of the western Rift Valley. In addition supplementary surveys were carried out in Ikuga, Lugufu Basin, situated on the track to Ilundi from the coast. Ref., tables, figures.
