A simple model of wood supply and clearing of African woodlands with special reference to Tanzania


, : A simple model of wood supply and clearing of African woodlands with special reference to Tanzania. Journal of World Forest Resource Management 5(1): 47-57

Simulation of forest clearance for agriculture (permanent subsistence production of food crops), driven by population growth, is described. Three phases of land use development are included - an initial land clearance phase; a phase when wood supply becomes scarce; and a phase when all arable land has been cleared for agriculture or fuelwood plantations.

To prevent flooding of the Dutch delta, former estuaries have been impounded by the building of dams and sluices. Some of these water bodies, however, experience major ecological problems. One of the problem areas is the former Volkerak estuary th...
