    Kenya

    Land is a critical resource in Kenya, having economic, social, political,
    environmental and cultural significance. Kenya’s population continues to rely
    on land for both subsistence and economic activities. In fact, the increase
    of the population from about 20 million people in the 1960s to about 40
    million currently, has put enormous pressure on land. Only a third of Kenya’s
    land is arable while the rest is arid and semi-arid. With most Kenyans still
    living off the land, contestations over access to, control over and ownership

    The Kenyan below-ground biodiversity (BGBD) team selected two benchmark sites for the inventory of soil biota which were the Irangi and Ngangao forest sites located in Mount Kenya region of Embu District and the Taita Hills area of Taita Taveta District. These two sites are found in biodiversity hotspots that support rare and endemic plant and animal species. The larger Embu and Taita benchmark areas were demarcated
    into sampling areas which are referred to as windows ’W’ in this study. Site characterization was carried out using the method provided by FAO-UNESCO for

    The diversity of nematode destroying fungi in Taita Taveta, Wundanyi division, Coast
    Province, Kenya, was investigated between May 2006 and December 2007 aiming at harnessing
    their potential in the biological control of plant parasitic nematodes in the area.
    Given that the intensity of land cultivation is continually increasing in the study area, it is
    prudent to document the status of the nematode destroying fungi before the remaining
    forest habitats are ultimately disrupted. Soil samples were collected from forest, maize/

    Land as a resource and factor of production plays a major role in the development of a country. The management and administration of land is
    done through structures and processes that are governed by the existing institutional and regulatory frameworks. In most of the countries, these
    processes are undertaken by public service institutions (central and local government), which are not only the custodians of public land but of
    records and information pertaining to land rights. With the world becoming a global village, it has become apparent that the performance of

    This paper presents data on diversity and abundance of soil macrofauna of various land use systems in Embu, Kenya (natural forest, plantation forest, fallow, coffee, tea, napier, and maize). Each was sampled for macrofauna using three sampling methods (monolith,
    transect and pitfall traps). Thirty four (34) genera/species of soil macrofauna were recorded, the highest number (27) being observed in napier. Majority of these genera/species being Coleoptera. Rényi diversity profile indicated that in terms of

    transect and pitfall trapping). Seventy eight (78) genera/species were recorded across the different land use systems of Taita. Rényi diversity profile indicated no significant differences in species richness across land use systems as reflected by the very close
