A conceptual model of the spatio-temporal dynamics of Shifting Agricultural Systems (SAS) in the rainforest region of Southern Cameroon made it possible to identify five different cultivation cycles, which enabled the quantification of soil dynamics and carbon stocks. Carbon stocks in each pool were evaluated using all chronosequences for land use types, including Virgin forest (PF), Secondary forest (SF), Forest fallow (FF), Chromolaena fallow (CF), Mixed crop field (MC) and Old cocoa plantations (OCP).

Cameroon

A field study was carried out in the village Ngoungoumou in the humid forest zone of Cameroon to assess changes in particle size distribution and soil chemical properties in relation to different land-use systems. These strongly acid soils are mainly composed of clay and sand, and are generally devoid of crop nutrients at the benefit of exchangeable Al occupying the nearly entire exchange complex. The major portion of the nutrients is stored in the top-soil, together with the organic matter. Land-use systems significantly affected the clay, the silt and the sand fractions.

The study focuses on land holding rights of the Fulani pastoralists and its effect on their agropastoral production system. It was discovered that among the land holding rights options available for land users in Yoruba communities where the Fulanis are settled, leasehold right was the viable option for the pastoralists.

Trees in the Agrarian Systems of the Sahelian Zone of Niger: Management Practices, Benefits and Constraints. In the Sahelian regions, tree is an integrated part of the farming systems. The present study concerns the tree management practices, their benefits and constraints. A survey was conducted in 7 village sites of the southwestern part of Niger according to a southnorth aridity gradient in order to understand how rural people manage trees in their farms. The objective was to analyse the systems, tree management practices, benefits and constraints.
