interest, the book is fascinating, stimulating and lucid, and may be read from cover to cover. The Longmans book entitled The Population of Tropical Africa consists principally of the papers presented to the First African Population Conference held in Ibadan, Nigeria, in January I There are forty-six such papers, which have been divided into. Past, current and projected future population growth is outlined. Barring a calamitous pandemic, a further increase in the world’s population from 7 to between and 10 billion by mid-century.

The population of Tropical Africa is still overwhelmingly rural. Of the estimated population of million, covering thirty five countries, only some 26 million (or 11 per cent) lived in settlements w or more in-habitants. Africa is the least urbanized of continents, but this demographic fact belies the new importance of African. Ethiopia, country on the Horn of Africa. The country lies completely within the tropical latitudes and is relatively compact, with similar north-south and east-west dimensions. The capital is Addis Ababa (“New Flower”), located almost at the centre of the country. Ethiopia is the largest and most populated country in the Horn of Africa.

Sixty-one per cent of the global population lives in Asia ( billion), 17 per cent in Africa ( billion), 10 per cent in Europe ( million), 8 per cent in Latin America and the Caribbean. Consistent estimates of cause-specific mortality are essential for understanding the overall epidemiological profile of disease in a population. The principal data source for these estimates is civil registration systems. Adequately functioning systems that produce statistics on causes of death on a regular basis exist in only about one-third of all countries of the world (Lopez et al. ).Cited by:

Heisel, Frank Lorimer, Anatole Romaniuk, and Etienne Van De the editorial sponsorship of the Office of Population Research, Princeton : D. Roberts. Tropical Africa is a complex and dynamic region. Occupying a marginal position in the world economic system, the region has seemingly insurmountable problems.

This book breaks through the complexities with a straightforward and systematic text supported by concise case studies. Africa's forests are being depleted at a faster rate than of any other continent. A major increase in the population growth rate began after World War II and it is now running at an annual rate of per cent, resulting in massive demands for agricultural land, water, fuelwood and other products.

There is no simple answer to environmental degradation and forest conservation must be part of a. This book is unique in its approach in that each chapter covers women in their everyday lives and the problems, which concern them.

Until now, ethnographic research has almost always been carried out with the help of the male population and as a result the picture that has emerged has been largely the image, which the men, and the men alone, have of their society.

In addition to the rift valley, Sub-Saharan Africa contains a number of highland and plateau regions as well as large, tropical basins, the largest of which is the Congo Basin. This basin begins in the highlands of the rift valley and is the drainage area for the Congo River, Africa’s largest river by discharge and the deepest river in the world.

Flora Of Tropical East Africa - Verbenaceae () This book is a comprehensive review of the genera of Verbenaceae, a flowering plant family, found in tropical East Africa. It presents information on their character, occurrence, habitat, phenotypic variations and distribution of each of the species under these genera.
