Abstract

The Republic of the Congo, which is not to be confused with the Democratic Republic of the Congo (Zaire) comprises a long corridor, following the valley of the Congo River. A coastal plain gives way to a low range of mountains before opening into interior plains. It has a warm tropical climate supporting rain forests, but its lateritic soils give relatively low fertility. About one-third of the population of 4.1 million live in the capital, Brazzaville.
