Full Description


This work brings together for the very first time within one volume authoritative and up-to-date accounts of the principal types of vegetation found in West Africa and describes the main processes that occur within them. It deals with such varied topics as the complex inter-relationships between plants and animals, the breeding systems found in West African plants, the structure and dynamics of forest, savanna, desert, coastal and montane vegetation, and the urgent need to conserve this natural environment. Plant Ecology in West Africa reviews and summarises our present knowledge of this plant environment in a comprehensive manner and from an ecological viewpoint. It will be essential reading for the student of tropical botany and the research worker in plant ecology, and will provide understanding of basic processes so necessary to tackle problems of agriculture and land use in the tropics, as well as offering a valuable reference work to all those concerned with the development and management of the natural resources of the third world.
