Description :
Comprising over thirty essays written by specialists, this lavishly illustrated book traces various aspects of Portuguese scientific activity in tropical territories between 1883 and 2010, initially in a colonial context and subsequently within the framework of cooperation and economic development in Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Cap Verde, Sao Tome and Principe, and East Timor. Eight main themes are presented : map-making, scientific ideas and practices overseas, geographical expeditions, geological and pedological enquiries, anthropological investigations, agronomic research, botanical and zoological surveys, and the legacy of overseas investigations in the form of publications, films, and artefacts. The activities of geographer Orlando Ribeiro (1911-1997) are recounted in several essays. – (HC)
