Abstract:The central theme of this collective volume is the idea that analysing both the human and the biophysical factors affecting savannas and dry forests is integral to their effective management and long-term sustainability. Besides three chapters on Middle and South America and the introduction and conclusion (both by Andrea Berardi and Jayalaxshmi Mistry), the volume contains the following chapters on Africa: Framing field expansion strategies in the savanna biome: land use and land cover dynamics in and around Tiogo Forest Reserve, Burkina Faso (D. Andrew Wardell and Anette Reenberg); Ecosystem dynamics and institutional inertia: a discussion of landscape conservation in northern Tanzania (Jim Igoe); Assessing 'overgrazing' in savannas [in Botswana] (Richard Smith); Managing a burned mosaic: a landscape-scale human ecological model of savanna fires in Mali (Paul Laris); Synergies in biodiversity conservation and adaptation to climate change: the case of hilltop forests in Kitui, Kenya (Siri Eriksen, F. Norman Gachathi, Benard Muok, Benson Ochieng and Bernard Owuor); Interactions between Sudano-Sahelian savannas and parklands in space and time: the effects on biomass and biodiversity with regards to stakeholder strategies (Denis Gautier, Didier Bazile and Nicolas Picard).
