Abstract

Black and white air photos of different dates were compared, in order to obtain data on trends in land use and woody vegetation in the fuelwood hinterland of Kano, Nigeria. This data is required in order to estimate present and past production of woody vegetation in different land use zones. Accuracy in the interpretation of total tree numbers is fairly high, and the major source of inaccuracy is thought to be the inability to distinguish smaller trees, which, in any case, contribute little to actual timber volume. -from Authors
