Abstract : The purpose of the report is to present some of the results gained by grappling with problems during the six-year period that the McGill University Savanna Research Project has operated both at McGill University and in the Rupununi-Rio Branco savannas of the Southern Guyana/Brazil border region. The savanna is a plant formation of tropical regions, comprising a virtually continuous ecologically dominant stratum of more or less xeromorphic plants, of which herbaceous plants, especially grasses and sedges, are frequently the principal, and occasionally the only, components, although woody plants often of the dimensions of trees or palms generally occur and are present in varying densities.
