On May 9, 1997 the government of Tanzania legally decreed the Amani Nature Reserve in the East Usambara mountains for the protection of the biodiversity of these sub-montane rain forests. The East Usambara rain forests are one of the most valuable conservation areas in Africa and one of the biodiversity hotspots and centers of plant diversity in the world. Their biological significance has been compared to the Galapagos Islands. According to Centers of Plant Diversity Volume 1, the flora of the East Usambaras consists of 1921 indigenous vascular plant taxa, 64 of which are strict endemics, with an additional 41 taxa known elsewhere only from the West Usambaras. Many endemic animals are also found in some groups of molluscs, amphibians and reptiles, and birds. The rain forests secure the water supply for 200,000 people in Tanga, and local people in the mountains depend on the forests for their daily needs.

The East Usambara Catchment Forest Project (EUCFP) has worked in the East Usambara mountains since 1990 with the mission to protect these natural forests. The establishment of a nature reserve in Amani, the area with the most endemic plants, was officially proposed in 1988; in 1992 the EUCFP prepared a plan for the establishment and management of the Amani Nature Reserve with the survey and mapping being completed in 1994. The total area of the reserve will be 8,380 hectares, which includes 1,065 hectares of forests owned by private tea companies, and the Amani Botanical Garden, one of the largest in Africa.

One of the major tasks of the EUCFP will be to prepare a management plan for the reserve, involving local people and other land owners in the East Usambara area. It is hoped that in the future the reserve will gain status as a Man and the Biosphere Reserve or Global Heritage Site. For more information, contact East Usambara Catchment Forest Project, P.O.

Plants have always been and still are utilized in various ways: not only for food, fuel and construction material, but also as raw materials for the spice, cosmetics and medicinal plant industries. Europe as elsewhere is a major consumer of wild plants with Germany playing a significant role in the international trade in these commodities. The majority of these resources are obtained through wild-harvesting and not by cultivation or agricultural production. To assess the impact on the natural resources and to develop conservation strategies, it is important to get more detailed information on the trade.

Recently, a new study, Trade Survey of Medicinal Plants in Germany, by Lange and Schippmann, describes the national and international structures of the trade in plant drugs, and provides an overview of the plant species identified, their trade commodities and uses. The analysis of imports and exports from 1991 to 1994 emphasizes the important role of Germany in the international trade regime. This study was published by the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation and can be obtained by writing: BfN-Schriftenvertrieb im Landwirtschaftsverlag GmbH, Postfach 480249, D-48079 Munster, Germany; Tel.: 02501/801-118; Fax: 02501/801-204.

Stretching from the redwoods of California to the vast stands of spruce and hemlock in southeast Alaska, coastal temperate rain forests have been for thousands of years home to one of the highest densities of human settlements on the North American continent. Given its mild climate, magnificent scenery, and abundant natural resources, the region should continue to support robust economies and vibrant communities for many years to come. However, the well-being of this region is increasingly threatened by diminishing natural capital, declining employment in traditional resource-based industries, and outward migration of young people to cities.

A new book, The Rain Forest of Home. Profile of a North American Bioregion edited by Schoonmaker, von Haugen and Wolf, brings together a diverse array of thinkers - conservationists, community organizers, botanists, anthropologists, zoologists, Native Americans, ecologists, and others - to present a multilayered multidimensional portrait of the coastal temperate rain forests and its people. Interspersed among the chapters are 24 compelling profiles of community-level initiatives and programs aimed at restoring damaged ecosystems, promoting sustainable use of resources and fostering community- based economic development. The Rain Forest of Home is available from Island Press, Box 7, Dept. 2PR, Covelo, CA 95428; Tel.: 800-828-1302.
