      Islands of dense forest in the savanna of 'forest' Guinea have long been regarded both by scientists and policy-makers as the last relics of a once more extensive forest cover, degraded and degrading fast due to its inhabitants' land use. In this text, James Fairhead and Melissa Leach question these entrenched assumptions. They show, on the contrary, how people have created forest islands. The World's savannas: economic driving forces, ecological constraints, and policy options for sustainable land use.

      The African savanna boasts the largest land animal, the elephant, and the tallest land animal, the giraffe. The baobab tree can live for thousands of years. The savanna has the highest biodiversity of herbivore animals of any biome. Many of the animals in the savanna have long legs which helps them when migrating long distances. Activities. Land Use, Land Cover and Trends in Senegal. The most significant change in Senegal is the evolving extent of cultivated areas. The overall expansion of cropland is relatively small, f sq km in to 32, sq km in sq km in , or a 26 percent increase between and However, the recent pattern and extent of cropland is profoundly modifying Senegal’s landscapes.

      In this study, we quantify the impacts of climate and land use on soil N2O and CH4 fluxes from tropical forest, agroforest, arable and savanna ecosystems in Africa. A savanna or savannah is a mixed woodland - grassland ecosystem characterised by the trees being sufficiently widely spaced so that the canopy does not close. The open canopy allows sufficient light to reach the ground to support an unbroken herbaceous layer consisting primarily of grasses. Savannas maintain an open canopy despite a high tree density.
