    Defining and Explaining Tropical Deforestation Shifting Cultivation and PopulationGrowth In Colonial madagascar. Economic geography. October 1993. v69n4.
    Deforestation in Madagascar(MADAGAS)
    An Analysis
    Case Number: 375 Case Mnemonic: MADAGAS Case Name: Deforestation in Madagascar A. IDENTIFICATION 1. The Issue
    2. Description Since 1896 when Madagascar gain became a French colony, the Malagasy forests have been rapidly depleting. Logging has occurred for shifting cultivation, grazing, fuel wood gathering, logging, economic development, cattle ranching, and mining (Economic Geography, 1993). Prior to 1950 most deforestation that occurred was done by farmers on a very small scale, however, deforestation since 1950 has increased tremendously.
    From 1950 to 1985, one half of Madagascar's forests disappeared. In 1985 only 34% of the original forests existing in Madagascar remained. Much of this destruction is for economic reasons; values which many westerners cannot agree. With a per capita national product in 1994 equal to $740.00 and population rate of 3%, the island nation is left as one of the poorest nations in the world.
    Unfortunately, due to the hardship in Madagascar, citizens often resort to exploitation of their natural resources to find income. The people of Madagascar are attempting to survive and conservation of biological diversity is not a priority. In addition, corporations have significant influence in dealing with the problem of deforestation because the government of Madagascar wants their investment. Due to the extreme debt incurred by the Malagasy government, the country is exploiting its wood resources to pay off money owed to northern countries.

    M adagascar is located in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Mozambique, Africa. It is the fourth largest island in the world with a total land area of 587,040 square kilometers. It is estimated that Madagascar was first settled some 1,800 to 2,500 years ago by seafarers who spoke Austronesian, a term that represents a group of Malayo-Polynesian languages. The island has a humid tropical climate and experiences heavy rainfall averaging 3700 millimeters (146 inches) annually at the Bay of Antongil on the island's northeast coast. The Answer:

    Space Shuttle Photograph
    Larger Image
    (92k JPEG) T his image shows the mouth of the Betsiboka River which empties into the Mozambique Channel - the waterway separating Madagascar from mainland Africa. Intensive farming, deforestation and heavy rains caused massive erosion of topsoil. Red sediment can be seen filling the braided channels of the river and a large plume of sediment is flowing out into the Channel. Slash-and-burn cultivation, overgrazing and logging of tropical forests have depleted the island of its natural vegetation and as a result, heavy rains wash away the fertile soil into rivers and streams. T he sediment's red color is caused by decomposition of gneiss, the rock which forms the island's central plateau, and from iron oxide and aluminum oxide in the soil.

    web hosting domain names email addresses related sites ... LINKS African geography Relief: Africa is bounded N by the Mediterranean Sea, W by the Atlantic Ocean, and E by the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea. Its greatest length from N to S is 8,000 km/5,000 mi and its breadth from Cape Verde to Ras Hafun is 7,440 km/4,623 mi. Its area, including Madagascar and the other adjacent islands, is 30,097,000 sq km/11,620,451 sq mi, or three times that of Europe. The coastline is regular, with no deep seas, bays, or river estuaries of any size to afford climatic or commercial advantages; so that in proportion to its size Africa has less coastline than any other continent, its total length being about 25,600 km/15,900 mi. Mountains: The mountains of Africa may be divided into three distinct systems: (1) the Atlas; (2) the west coast; and (3) the east coast. The Atlas Mountains occupy the northern portion between the sea and the Sahara, from Wadi Daa to Cape Bon. The eastern Atlas , 1,830-2,440 m/6,000-8,000 ft high, consist of two parallel ranges enclosing a plateau where salt lakes called chotts are found. The western Atlas , known as the Great Atlas of Morocco, have an average elevation of 3,050 m/10,000 ft, and the highest peaks are over 4,275 m/14,025 ft.

    African Geography - Program Outline, Lesson 1, Lesson 1 Worksheet, and Resource List Program Outline
    The target student age for this project is fourth grade, but I believe it could be used anywhere from students in eighth grade to high-level students in third grade.
    The major goal of this program is to satisfy the Core Knowledge study of African geography for fourth grade. A benefit of this program is that it is also designed to develop technological proficiency. The task sheets are structured in a format that allows students to become not only familiar with an Internet resource, but also confident in their ability to navigate that resource.
    A realistic timeline for this program will depend on the technological proficiency of your students. If you are using this program as an introduction to the Internet, you should allow more than one 50-minute class period to complete a task sheet. On the other hand, if your students are Internet wizards and you’re mainly after the geographical component of this program, it is not unrealistic to assume that you might complete this unit in a week. Let your conscience be your guide make sure both you and the students are comfortable with the pace.
    Assessments include the task sheets and homework assignments, which I use as participation grades, and teacher observations. Students will complete a final project that incorporates knowledge gained during the unit in a cooperative learning activity.
