Estimation of land-use changes on Kitulo Plateau, Tanzania,using satellite imagery


Oryx 28(3): 173-182
Estimation of land-use changes on Kitulo Plateau, Tanzania,using satellite imagery
The geography, climate, vegetation and conservation interest of the 273 kmsuperscript 2 Kitulo Plateau (a lava plateau at >2500 m alt.) are briefly described. The vegetation is predominantly grassland, with >350 taxa of vascular plants of which nearly 5% have a restricted distribution. Land use changes between 1973 and 1989 were monitored by satellite imagery. During the study period there was increased use of land for cultivation, attributed to a rising population in the area.
