The ecological regions of Kenya: their classification in relation to agricultural development


, : The ecological regions of Kenya: their classification in relation to agricultural development. Emp. J. exp. Agric, 24: 94, 89-108. bibl. 20

The writer seeks to present an approach to the problems of development based upon ecological classification. Kenya consists of regions with strongly contrasted environments, and these extend widely into neighbouring territories. Such regions are clearly defined by major plant communities. The communities are described and an account is given of their reactions to present forms of utilization.
