dc.description.abstractWe emphasise several points: Vegetation (especially the major trees) is an important part of the resource base in areas such as Mbere; the local Mbere people have built up a highly detailed knowledge of their plants; Mbere perceptions are often more appropriate than external ones; development planners should pay more attention to indigenous plants, and indigenous knowledge of the plants. After general observations on Mbere division, its vegetation and research methodology, there is a detailed examination of selected species of savanna trees, emphasising changes in use and occurrence. The conclusion considers implications for the Mbere and for development.en_GB
