This paper describes the traditional agroforestry systems based on Acacia albida and other multipurpose trees as practised by the sedentary Fur people on the lower slopes and highlands of the Jebel Marra massif, Sudan. The basic agrosilvopastoral system consists of terraced village fields, where semipermanent rainfed cropping of staple millet and other subsistence crops takes place under.

The effect of a forest reserve establishment on the natural forest ecosystem recovery and on the protection of valuable indigenous woody species in Jebel Marra, the Democratic Republic of the Sudan, is described.

The following hypothesis is formulated: The vegetation of the southwestern slopes of Jebel Marra, when protected from periodic disturbance, may recover to almost fully regenerated.

The 2 mountains of the Sudan, Jebel Marra and the Imatong Mountains, and their altitudinal vegetation belts are described. Relations between soil, vegetation and land use are discussed.

This study attempts to relate vegetation distribution to land use history in Jebel Marra, the Democratic Republic of the Sudan.

There are evidences that most,if not all, of the woody vegetation communities in Jebel Marra have been derived from some more complex types by continuous disturbance ssince antiquity. Here past and contemporary land use types are described and associated to woody.

VEGETATION PATTERNS IN DARFUR i Two different patterns were recognised during the course of a vegetation survey for the United Nations Special Fund Jebel Marra Project.

The first was a fossil drainage pattern, clearly visible on the aerial photographs but. Populations of Albizia amara, Acacia senegal, Anogeissus leiocarpus, and Balanites aegyptiaca were monitored in five habitats in the Jebel Marra region: clay plains, sand plains, wadis, northern slopes, and southern slopes of the Jebel Marra (mountain) region.

The plains and wadi habitat types had been regularly disturbed because of cycles of shifting cultivation. When land was prepared. The geology of the Tertiary-Recent Marra mountains is shown on photogeological maps and described using data from short field visits and from previous literature.

The km long mass is aligned N-S parallel to basement trends; it comprises a stratified complex m thick of olivine basalts, pyroclastics and trachytes. Coarse detrital deposits testify to concomitant erosion.

The middle eco-ethnic zone of the Jebel Marra massif is the richest area in the region in terms of soil fertility, rainfall, abundance of surface and underground water, and other natural resources. The occupants of this area are settled traditional farmers. They are mainly from the non-Arab indigenous people of the region.

Darfur's biological importance derives from its range of ecosystems, from northern deserts to southern deciduous woodland, because it forms a bridge between west and east and because of the isolated massif of Jebel Marra.

A study of museum material (Setzer, ) relating to the whole of the Sudan Republic provides some useful information on systematics, although, as has already been pointed out (Happold, ) there is a number of omissions for the country as a whole, and for Jebel Marra in particular, perhaps because there is a lack of specimens from the Sudan.

Darfur covers an area in excess ofsquare kilometres in the west of the Republic of Sudan. The Sultanate of Darfur was an independent entity for eight centuries. Three “outsiders” in the sultanate commented on its biology before its annexation by Egypt in the s.
