About this book

Second volume to be published in this important 3-part series of atlases. Using the latest data from a variety of organisations and sources, including remote sensing by satellite, the volume provides a country by country description of the tropical forests of the continent. Forest destruction is discussed in terms of effects on species diversity and local culture; management; control and limitation of human impact; and strategies for sustainable forest development.
`...an immensely valuable contribution to promoting the conservation of Africa's threatened forest' Jacquie Morris, ORYX
