Abstract
The Misuku Land Usage Scheme ell1braces some 500 square miles of mountainous country lying to ,the north-west of Karonga and some 40 miles from Lake Nyasa. The area is bounded by the Songwe River and Tanganyika on its northern boundary. Some of the mountains attain a height of 6,000-7,000 ft., and' the whole area abounds with deep rugged watercourses. Small patches of evergreen forest still survive on three of the high mountain tops, and the whole area was well wooded and watered when first penetrated by the Asukwa people some years ago.
