Secondary successions after shifting cultivation in a dense tropical forest of southern Cameroon (Central Africa)

The ongoing debate on deforestation in the tropics usually points out agriculture and logging as the main causes. The two activities are often linked and the trails created by logging com-panies with their heavy machines
The ongoing debate on deforestation in the tropics usually points out agriculture and logging as the main causes. The two activities are often linked and the trails created by logging com-panies with their heavy machines are afterwards used by farmers to penetrate deep into the forest and cultivate. Shifting cultivation is a widespread agricultural practice in the tropics and its sustainability is often a matter of controversy.  It is necessary to investigate forest recovery after shifting cultivation, analyze its succession stages for comparison with regeneration after natural disturbance, and evaluate its role for discussing the hazards of deforestation.
