Abstract

The objective of this paper is to evaluate in what ways subsistence farmers in semi-arid West Africa contribute to this process of change by altering their land use patterns in response to increased demographic pressure and environmental constraints. Sharply contrasting experiences occurring at micro scale need to be incorporated in conceptual models of the evolutionary trends in land use systems
