Abstract

The A. outlines aspects of the new paradigm for dryland ecosystems and pastoral production systems. With the new paradigm a coherent theory is provided linking the dynamics of drylands with pastoral strategies. Consequences of the new paradigm are analysed from a theoretical point of view, emphasis is on implications for pastoral mobility with a focus on pastoral systems in West Africa. In an example from Ferlo, Senegal, different types of pastoral mobility are discussed with special focus on the importance of scale. It is concluded that pastoral mobility is a rational response to climate variability and unpredictability in African drylands
