This text aims to provide a comprehensive up-date of research on forest-savanna boundaries. Key features of the book include case studies of vegetation structure and dynamics; a discussion of the nature of the boundary as examined from remote sensing and from models of the forest edge; studies of animal ecology at the boundary with examples of both vertebrate and invertebrate examples; treatment of the influence of physical and chemical environmental factors; treatment of palaeo-environmental changes and vegetation history; and examples from all the major geographical areas of savanna-forest transition.
It is a unique ...book, with much of interest and value. The literature on savanna is sparse so we must welcome this addition to its interface with forest. BES Bulletin
