      This study was conducted near the Big Babanki village in the Bamenda Highlands, North-West Province, Cameroon cameroon Subject Category: Geographic Entities see more details. The results revealed that forest and savanna specialists differ not only in the mean threshold value but . The forest floor is pretty dark and relatively open because dead plant material is rapidly decomposed-it doesn't form a litter layer like we see in mid latitude forests. Because of the competition for light, many plants, like vines and epiphytes, live out of the soil, getting their physical support from trees.

      This block straddles the southern portion of the Nigeria-Cameroon border and contains most of the existing protected areas in the study region. The remaining near 50 percent of the project region consists of disturbed forest, mangrove, and non-forest, including savanna and cropland. The study area includes the town of Tibati in the north, the Reserve de Faune de Pangar et Djerem in the east, and the Sanaga river to the town of Nanga Eboko in the south. According to the ONADEF Ecological Map of Cameroon, the study area falls in a region of forest, woodland savanna and tree savanna (Fig. 2b).

      Cameroon - Cameroon - Settlement patterns: In general, there is a cultural division between the north and the south. The northern savanna plateau is inhabited by Sudanic and Arab pastoralists who migrate seasonally in search of grazing land, whereas the forested and hilly south is peopled by Bantu agriculturists living in permanent villages. loss of forest area of million hectares per year. In the period AD this was reduced to six million hectares per year as a result of reductions in Indonesia, Sudan, Brazil and Australia (table 1). There were 28 countrie s and areas which have an estimated net loss of one per cent or more of their forest area per year.

Cameroon's coastal plain extends 20 to 80 kilometres (10 to 50 mi) inland from the Gulf of Guinea (part of the Atlantic Ocean) to the edge of a plateau.

In the former western state, however, the mass of Mount Cameroon reaches almost to the sea. The plain is densely forested including areas of Central African mangroves especially around Douala and in the estuary of the Cross River on the border.

His geomorphic cycle model was inspired by theories of uniformitarianism and attempted to theorize the development of various landform features. The objective of my research was to explain the origins of the forest islands in a selected area of the Bolivian Amazon.

The savanna-forest boundary in West Africa is one of its most remarkable geographical features. The clarity with which the boundary is defined, whether seen from the air or from ground level, is, throughout most of its length, most striking.

The Republic of Cameroon is located in West Africa and is bordered by Nigeria, Chad, Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea, and the Republic of country coverskm 2 making it the world’s 53 rd largest country.

Cameroon exhibits all the major climates and vegetation of Africa. The country is divided into five geographical zones according to the climatic and vegetative. All living trees (≥30 cm gbh) were enumerated in 80×80 m plots arranged along four transects in the Douala-Edea Forest Reserve Cameroun, a system of low-lying ancient coastal sand dunes interspersed by numerous streams and swamps.

The extent of permanent and seasonal swamps was recorded for each plot. Two hundred thirty taxa were recognized of which 63% were identified to species. In the south, the Tropical Forest Zone (TFZ) is Ghana’s wettest ecoregion, with remnants of its biologically diverse evergreen rain forest.

Finally, the Coastal Savanna (CS) ecoregion is highly distinguished by its relatively low rainfall in two seasons, high population density, grassland savanna vegetation, and coastal geomorphology that.

The book will be of interest to all concerned with tropical forests and related development problems of third world countries, especially ecologists, botanists and earth scientists.

In Cameroon, more precisely in the Kandara area, the recent researches undertaken by Achoundong et al.,Achoundong et al.,Kamgang Beyala et al. (), Kamgang Kabeyene Beyala () and Youta Happi (), have also clearly demonstrated that the forest is today spreading over the savanna, with occurrence of several successional.

Topography: mountain areas have a higher elevation and thus greater potential energy than the lowlands. This, combined with the steeper slope angles, results in more dynamic erosion in upland areas than on the surrounding plains.

Rock Type: the type of rock determines how susceptible an area is to erosion. Within the same climatic regime, each.agriculture. The study area covered a total of seven villages selected from two distinct agro-ecological zones in the northern Cameroon.

This paper describes the differences in the pattern of onchocerciasis seen in the two areas, and correlates them with the intensity of infection as measured by the number of nodules and by microfilarial concentrations in the skin and eye.

A diagnosis of onchocerciasis was made if: (1) microfilariae of O. volvulus were found in a skin snip at the shoulder or buttock; (2) there were 3 or more.
