Synthesizing 40 years of ongoing ecological research, this book examines the structure, function, and dynamics of the Lamto humid savanna. From the history of the Lamto ecology station, to an overview of enivronmental conditions of the site, and examining the integrative view of energy and nutrient fluxes relative to the dynamics of the region's vegetation, this exacting work is as unique and treasured as Lamto itself.

From the reviews:
"This new volume is good news for savanna ecologists. It is a summary and integration of some four decades of ecological research in the savanna of Lamto in Ivory Coast, West Africa. ... a most interesting book that is of great value to savanna ecologists. ... This is a very valuable and interesting book which I certainly recommend to all savanna ecologists, and I congratulate the authors with their achievement." (Marinus J. A. Werger, Phytocoenologia, Vol. 38 (1-2), August, 2008)
