    Abstract

    This book contains 6 chapters covering: the dynamics of cassava in Africa; the introduction and diffusion of cassava in Africa; current distribution of cassava in Africa; the relationship of cassava distribution to environment and population; distribution and change in cassava production in Nigeria, Tanzania and Zaire; and conclusions. The book includes 8 coloured maps (58 × 40 cm, 1:15 000 000) of Africa south of about 20°N., dated February 1992 (except map 1, dated August 1990) covering: cassava distribution in 1980; climatic classification for cassava; soil restrictions for cassava; population density (persons/km²) in 1980; dry season length and generalized soil constraints; percentage of land area in cassava (1980 fitted values); residuals from the cassava distribution model; and percentage of land area in cassava (2000 fitted values). There are 3 appendices describing the sources of data for the map of cassava distribution, the techniques used for environmental and demographic mapping and the population data used.
