A Study of the Plant Ecology of the Coastal Region of Kenya Colony, British East Africa INTRODUCTION At the request of the Kenya Department of Agriculture through the East Africa Agriculture and Forestry Research Organization, an ecological study of the coastal regions of Kenya was undertaken.

The study was supported. The natural history of Africa encompasses some of the well known megafauna of that continent. In the coast regions the typical tree is the mangrove, which flourishes wherever the soil is of a swamp character.

Bantu is by far the largest, and its speakers are mainly concentrated in the southern third of the country. The Kikuyu, Kamba, Meru, and Nyika peoples occupy the fertile Central Rift highlands, while.

Kenya - Kenya - Plant and animal life: In the highlands between elevations of 7, and 9, feet (2, and 2, metres), the characteristic landscape consists of patches of evergreen forest separated by wide expanses of short grass.

Where the forest has survived human encroachment, it includes economically valuable trees such as cedar (Juniperus procera) and.

The State of the Environment in Southern Africa Biological resources Southern Africa has rich biological resources in a variety of ecosystems that include moist tropical forests in Angola and Zambia, savannas, coastal and mangrove forests, deserts and semi-deserts, and in South Africa the extraordinary diversity of plants of the Cape Floral RegionFile Size: 83KB.This study applies a palaeoecological approach to identify a vegetation state that reflects a pre-colonial baseline in an endangered heathland in the Cape Floristic Region (CFR) of South Africa.The key messages about the state of biodiversity in Africa, and the pressures upon it, which have emerged from this assessment are: Overall, biodiversity in Africa continues to decline, with ongoing losses of species and habitats.

Ongoing loss of biodiversity in Africa is driven by a combination of human-induced factors.
