  • In most of Africa, area expansion has been based on smallholder agriculture in the context of population growth. 2 While countries on the continent range from very land scarce (such as Malawi and Rwanda) to relatively land abundant (such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, and Zambia), large-scale investment has been limited. A key reason for this was that policy distortions against agriculture, especially exports and low public investment in rural areas, have reduced investment incentives, thus limiting the development of Africa’s agricultural potential.

  • The residence time that contaminants and nutrients remain in lichen tissue differs among elements (Pucket 1985). Macronutrients, such as nitrogen, sulfur, potassium, magnesium and calcium are comparatively mobile and easily leached and therefore measurable changes in tissue concentrations can occur over weeks or months with seasonal changes in deposition (Boongaprob et al. 1989). In one study, mobile elements reached the same levels in transplants as the indigenous lichens within four to six months (Palomäki et al. 1992).

Some occupations are in greater supply in small firms than large firms. For instance, someone choosing to be a dental hygienist would tend to work for a small...
