Abstract

This paper presents an analysis of miombo woodland (highly dynamic semi-arid ecosystems found on nutriant-poor soil groups) surrounding the Mkata plains in central Tanzania. The paper focuses on long-term physical and biological changes, mainly based on satellite information but also on field studies, inventories, taxonomy, mapping and a review of documents and literature. There is a well-defined need to study the influence of social factors and resource use on landscape and biodiversity change in the miombo woodlands as well as in ecosystems derived from these. One possible way to maintain landscape and biodiversity values is by the sustainable use of traditional resources, based on local knowledge of their management as illustrated by the little change observed in the traditionally used area
