Abstract:In 1990 the University of Dschang in Cameroon and Leiden University in the Netherlands signed an agreement for cooperation in the field of environmental research and education. Jointly they established a research station in Maroua, called the Centre for Environment and Development Studies in Cameroon (CEDC). This book documents twenty years of CEDC operations, covering such topics as land use transition, new pastoralism, inland fisheries, carnivore and bird conservation, and the impact of bushland fires on herbivores. It also includes an overview of the projects in which CEDC staff and researchers played a role. [ASC Leiden abstract]
