Indigenous forests fragmentation and the significance of ethnic forests for conservation in the North Pare, the Eastern Arc Mountains, Tanzania


Indigenous forests fragmentation and the significance of ethnic forests for conservation in the North Pare, the Eastern Arc Mountains, Tanzania



Fennia 182(2): 109-132



ISSN/ISBN: 0015-0010

This study evaluates the extent and effects of fragmentation of the forests in the Eastern Arc Mountains, and particularly in the North Pare Mountains (NPM). The data have been collected using participatory methods. The vegetation cover analysis is based on comparison of air photos, satellite images and maps. In the NPM, the forest fragmentation is more substantial than presented in previous studies.
