Geography Department Brown-bag talk: Niwaeli Kimambo, M.Sc. PhD Student, Department of Geography, University of Wisconsin-Madison: -This talk presents trajectories of tree cover in the home range of an endangered arboreal primate and shows how natural tree re-growth in protected land suppressed, while in contrast, land belonging to smallholder agriculturalists is rapidly transforming to woodlots. This study investigates factors causing suppression of natural regeneration and expansion of tree cropping, and concludes with recommendations to incorporate smallholders’ land use in conservation connectivity planning.
