Conditions are warm to hot in all seasons, but significant rainfall occurs for only a few months each year—about October to March in the Southern Hemisphere and April to September in the Northern Hemisphere.

Mean annual precipitation is generally 80 to cm (31 to 59 inches. The largest areas of savanna are found in Africa, South America, Australia, India, the Myanmar (Burma)– Thailand region in Asia, and Madagascar.

Definition Of Biomes Large biotic communities corresponding to vegetation belts or zones are called biomes. Biomes are described as any large natural terrestrial ecosystem.

The type of any biome is largely determined by climatic factors, especially rainfall and temperature. Thus, regions of the world with similar climates have similar biomes. The local biomes in Nigeria. After dealing briefly with the use and place of an ecological survey in a natural resources investigation, this paper considers the practical problems involved in the recognition of plant communities and species on aerial photographs.

This chapter provides a detailed assessment of the ecological and socioeconomic conditions for the Southwest Savanna. It also identifies important planning and management considerations and suggests management opportunities that are compatible with the ecology of the landscape.

Abstract. So far we have been concerned primarily with the problems of survey and planning on the intensively utilized cultivated land of Asia. But there still remain some limited areas of primary vegetation, much larger areas of secondary and terminal vegetation, and large areas of land with low population density and light : Robert Orr Whyte.

Woody plants are key components of African savanna ecosystems as they provide wildlife habitats, offer browsing to ungulates and are also a major source of fuel wood.

Disturbance events such as herbivory and fire negatively affect woody plant communities. However, some woody plants respond to disturbance events through resprouting.

In savanna ecosystems, woody plants co-occur with grasses and Author: Allan Sebata. The African savanna contains a diverse community of organisms that interact to form a complex food web.

Savanna ecosystems play a major role in the natural landscape and in the economic life of vast areas of the tropics. These grasslands are inherently fragile, yet Third World economic development makes human exploitation inevitable.

The question that remains is whether utilization of the savannas for agriculture and other purposes will create sustained economic growth or a desert waste 5/5(1).In accordance with their mandate and the reccomandations of their statutory bodies, FAO and UNEP agreed to undertake a reassessment of the present situation and current evolution of the forest resources of the tropical world within the framework of the Global Environment Monitoring System (GEMS).
