Abstract

Aspects of the environment and ecology of Miombo woodlands are described. Attention is given to the widespread nature of their distribution area and the role played by Miombo at local and national levels. A matrix of woodland-use is presented. This offers some insight into changing resource-use patterns in Miombo, and highlights the conflicts which may ensue with the adoption of certain woodland management strategies.
