About this book

A multidisciplinary study of these vitally important areas. The contributors come from many disciplines, including ecology and environmental sciences, hydrology, soil science, geography, botany and zoology. This major work should be required reading for all involved with tropical forests and savannas.

It is a unique ...book, with much of interest and value. The literature on savanna is sparse so we must welcome this addition to its interface with forest. BES Bulletin
