Abstract


Deal with the dual economic and social crisis in the 1980s, many of the Third World farming communities have been able to develop agro-pastoral systems and forestry in order to stamp rural poverty. The case study of Batoufam situated in the western highlands of Cameroon is an edifying illustration. Studies based on surveys and remote sensing data show a dynamic that leads to a gallery forest snacking, isolated groves and alpine meadows in favor of the habitat, communication channels and farms. Despite the increased rate of afforestation in the soils of the range of 20 to 30 percent, the future of these residual plant formations remains concerned because of population growth and anthropogenic pressures on the lands.

Keywords: Plant formations, isolated groves, western highlands, Cameroon
