Swidden agriculture and the savannization of forests in Sierra Leone

, : Swidden agriculture and the savannization of forests in Sierra Leone. Dissertation Abstracts International A, Humanities and Social Sciences 50(2): p.476

Ethnographic and ecological fieldwork was conducted over 17 months during 1981-84 among Susu farmers in northwestern Sierra Leone. It focused on labour mobilization, the seasonal cycle of agriculture, and the ecology of swiddens to demonstrate whether farming activities are causing the transformation of forest land into savanna, or 'savannization'. The findings indicate that labour is a seasonally scarce resource, and this problem results in variations in farm management practices.
