    Cenchrus ciliaris L. (African foxtail grass) and Eragrostis superba Peyr. (Maasai lovegrass) grass
    species that are native to the rangelands have been promoted for rehabilitation of degraded areas
    and improve forage production. A major challenge to successful reseeding of the rangelands has
    been lack of certified seeds of these species in the formal seed systems except through collections
    from the wild. The main objective of the study was to contribute to improved livestock production

    Tropical rainforests are characterized by habitat stability and complexity. Hence, the forests
    support a rich biological diversity, including 40% of all bird species. However, these rain
    forests have been shrinking due to increasing rate of deforestation, fragmentation, and other
    forms of resource exploitation. Degradation and loss of rainforests has threatened their rich
    biological diversity and the life-support systems. However, the rate at which birds are
    displaced by forest clearing and the potential for birds' conservation on farmlands are not

    The study was carried out on twelve runoff
    plots installed at Kabete Campus Field Station,
    University of Nairobi, on a 10% natural slope of
    eutric Nitisol to assess the effect of grass strips
    in controlling soil loss and runoff on sloping land.
    Four treatments, a control plot without grass strip
    and three different widths (0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 m.) of
    Nandi setaria (Setaria anceps), were tested under
    natural rainfall during 1982 and 1983, simulated
    runoff, and simulated rainfall of 80 mm/hr.

    Irregular and Illegal allocation of land is a major component of the land question is in Kenya.
    The land question is a major rhetoric as it is not one issue but a myriad of issues entrenched in

    This study conducts an academic and practical surgery of the problem of land rights
    administration in the pre-colonial, colonial, independent and modern Kenya. At the core of the
    statement of the problem of the study lie issues of land tenure and sanctity of land titles in
    Kenya. Amazingly, the issues that form the nuclei of the “Land Question” in Kenya are closely
    intertwined with the socio-economic and political climate prevailing in the country. Hence, the
    study confronts the problem from the policy, legal-constitutional and institutional dimensions.

The high population has exerted enormous pressure on available land resource resulting in land fragmentation and uneconomic subdivision. However the seriousness of the problem has not been systematically analyzed and documented.
