Description :
The purpose of this article is to provide an introduction to the principles used in biogeochemical modelling and to illustrate them with examples from southern Africa : the geographical distribution of palatable and unpalatable grasslands, and high-herbivory and low-herbivory savannas ; the problem of estimating the emissions of trace gases and smoke particles from vegetation fires in the region ; the modelling of tropospheric ozone precursors produced by the soils and plants.
