    Kenya

    The future of wildlife in our conserved
    ecosystem depends largely on the future planning for
    land use in the adjacent areas. All National Parks
    and game reserves in Kenya, as they now exist, are in
    some degree or other dependent on the relationship
    between land use changes and wildlife in the areas
    sorrounding them. If the surrounding lands deteriorate
    through misuse, or if, in the management no consideration
    is given to wildlife, the national parks and game
    reserves will suffer, or,even be destroyed. Nairobi

    Ethiopia

    It soon became apparent that soil degradation in the Ethiopian Highlands may be posing a threat not only in terms of the physical loss of soils, but also in terms of deteriorating, soil chemical fertility. This study has therefore emphasized both the physical and chemical deterioration of soils due to degradation.

    Kenya

    In the Kinangop Plateau of Kenya where small holder farmers have been settled, varied climate and soils occur and the level of land use and management is not as high as may be expected. The climate and soils were therefore studied with a view to identity the constraints they present to land use and management and how the constraints may be rectified. Low temperatures and frequent frosts are the main climate constraints while imperfect drainage, low fertility and shallow effective rooting depth are some of the soil constraints.

    Reports experiences with on-farm trials to assess the use of single oxen for work on mixed smallholder farms in the central highlands of Ethiopia, with particular reference to draft power and agricultural production, design and testing of the single ox technique, and results obtained during the 1983 crop year and future prospects with respect to feed requirements and advantages of using the single ox.

    Ethiopia, Africa, Eastern Africa

    Compares the climates and soils and vegetation of the Ethiopian Rift Vallety with those of other areas in Africa, with particular reference to the screening of forage species. Examines the diversity of climates and soil conditions as they constitute constraints to forage or crop production in the Rift Valley, classifying major tribes in the grass flora, & analysing the adaptability of some genera of tropical forage legumes in commercial use to water stress, heat stress & poor soil.

    Analyzes the output of the Maasai pastoral system by examining three group ranches in the Kajiado District in Kenya, first in terms of output per animal, household cash and subsistence income from livestock for large-and small-scale producers, and second in terms of output per unit of pastoral land.

    Shifting cultivation, under its diverse forms of slash and burn system, is a traditional method of cultivating tropical upland soils, mostly for subsistence purposes. This traditional system of cultivation is in ecological balance with the environment and does not irreversibly degrade the soil resource, provided a sufficient length of fallow is allowed for soil restoration. However, increasing population pressures necessitate more intensive use of land. The consequence is extended cropping periods and shortened fallows.
