Overgrazing and bush encroachment by Tarchonanthus camphoratus in a semi-arid savanna



Overgrazing and bush encroachment by Tarchonanthus camphoratus in a semi-arid savanna



African Journal Of Ecology: 3, 449-451



This study investigated the influence of overgrazing on bush encroachment by <i>Tarchonanthus camphoratus</i> and compared tree recruitment rates in two different savanna habitats in Hell's Gate National Park, Kenya and a neighbouring Maasai village, Kaparitan, during September 2006. There was more <i>T. camphoratus</i> recruitment in the livestock-grazed area, indicated by the significantly higher mean number of seedlings in comparison with the wildlife-grazed area.
