Recent trends in the ecology and management of the world's savanna formations

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The savannas, which lie in the zones between the humid forests and the desert margins, are likely to be the most sensitive ecosystems to global environmental changes incident on such phenomena as global warming and ozone depletion. It is the purpose of this paper to review some of the key themes that are now being addressed in the research drive to understand more fully these patterns and processes, and to assess the progress in applying this understanding to the sustainable management of tropical savanna lands
