  • African ecology, undergraduate to post graduate level
  • Its comprehensive approach makes it a unique contribution to the ecological literature, which should provide a standard reference for students and teachers of African ecology for many years to come
  • Its historical approach provides benchmarks against which present conditions can be evaluated
  • Contains 29 chapters plus appendix, with 221 maps and figures, and 148 monochrome plates
In view of the rapidly changing ecology of Africa ,this work provides benchmarks for some of the major, and more neglected, aspects, with an accent on historical data to enable habitats to be seen in relation to their previous state, forming a background reference work to understanding how the ecology of Africa has been shaped by its past. Reviewing historical data wherever possible it adopts an holistic view treating man as well as animals, with accent on diseases both human and animal which have been a potent force in shaping Africa’s ecology, a role neglected in ecological studies.
