Palaeoecology of Africa, volume 31 presents two compressed English versions of the PhD theses by J. Eisenberg and M. Sangen, produced in the framework of the German Research Foundation's funded "Rain Forest Savanna Contact" project that has been carried out between 2004 and 2009 in Southern Cameroon (Central Africa). A complementary introductory, as well as summing up articles by two Cameroonian colleagues (B. Kankeu, M. Tchindjang) complete the results of this joint German-Cameroon research project.
This book will be of interest to all concerned with ecosystems dynamics, tropical forests, savannahs, deserts and related development problems of third world countries, especially ecologists, botanists, earth scientists (e.g. Quaternary and recent climate change), regional planners. It will be valuable for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates as a reference for new research articles on the topic of long term tectonic and Quaternary landscape and climate evolution in a marginal area of the Congo basin. Palaeobotanists, Palynologists and Quaternarists will equally find this edition useful for their work.
