The miombo in transition: woodlands and welfare in Africa edited by Bruce Campbell 1966 266pp ISBN 979 8764 07 2 Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) PO Box 6596 JKPWB, Jakarta 10065 INDONESIA
Miombo woodlands are the most extensive vegetation type in Africa south of the equator. These dry, tropical woodlands cover some 2.5 million hectares and are home to over 40 million people. Miombo products are very important to the livelihoods and basic needs of an additional 15 million urban Africans. The miombo in transition demonstrates the extent to which livelihood strategies of rural communities depend on miombo goods and services, and indicates the strong differentiation of uses within communities. The authors trace the host of policies that have influenced miombo woodlands and their uses, from pre-colonial times to the present. The book is a resource for researchers, with over 400 studies synthesized and supplemented by numerous figures, tables and plates.
