Abstract
  • This research was designed to search for regularities in the spatial pattern resulting from government designation of protected areas for conservation purposes on the African continent. Four countries were used to test for a relationship between protected areas and vegetation types and also whether colonial background had an impact on post- independence protected area policy. It was found that protected areas were more Likely to be implemented in savanna vegetation types. Colonial background did not influence post-colonial preservation policy. In fact, one country (Nigeria) of the four did not have a long colonial conservation policy but has established several protected areas in the post-colonial period. Two other countries (Ivory Coast and Zaire) have implemented protected areas in vegetation types different from those of the colonial era. It was also found that other vegetation types still remain unprotected. Finally, it has been suggested that one single factor does not explain protected area distribution.
