Conservation of biodiversity in the East African tropical forest
(Research gate, 2004-12)
Kakamega forest is one of the remnants of the equatorial guineo rainforest in the Eastern fringes of Africa. It was perhaps cut-off from the Congo region in the early volcanic era when the Great Rift Valley was formed. ...
Growth and nutrient uptake among three wetland plant species occurring in Lake Victoria basin in Kenya.
(AGRICULTURE AND BIOLOGY JOURNAL OF NORTH AMERICA, 2010)
Nutrient enrichment is one of the most serious threats to wetland ecosystems. Information is lacking, particularly concerning the response of wetland plants species in Kenya in regard to nutrient enrichment of wetlands. ...
Cesáro-like operators on the Hardy and Bergman spaces of the half plane
(Springer International Publishing, 2016-01-01)
We construct integral operators associated with strongly continuous groups of invertible isometries on the Hardy spaces and the weighted Bergman spaces of the upper half plane. Specifically, we obtain the spectrum and point ...
Effects of salinity on growth and photosynthesis of avocado seedlings

Livestock for household food security-A case study of small-scale mixed farmers in semi-arid Nyakach, Kenya
(International Journal of Livestock Research, 2016)
This paper considers both direct and indirect contributions of livestock to food security in semi-arid parts of Nyakach. Livestock production is a major component of the agricultural economy of developing countries and ...
Degradation capacity of a 1, 2, 4-trichlorobenzene mineralizing microbial community for traces of organochlorine pesticides
A soil-borne microbial community isolated from a contaminated site was previously shown to mineralize 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene (1,2,4-TCB) under aerobic conditions. The key degrader in this community was identified as ...
Effect of anthropogenic activities on physico-chemical parameters and benthic macroinvertebrates of Mara river tributaries, Kenya
The impact of anthropogenic activities within Bomet and Mulot towns on water quality of Amala and Nyangores tributaries of Mara River, Kenya was assessed using a combination of solid waste, physico-chemical parameters ...
Influence of Water Availability on Food Crop Production in Semi-Arid Areas in Kibwezi District, Makueni County, Kenya
(Arts Humanit, 2015)
Ecosystems provide essential services like water regulation and other processes which sustain and fulfill human life by directly or indirectly supporting humans‟ survival and quality of life. However, there is insufficient ...
Intensity of farmland cultivated and soil bulk density in different physiographic units in Nyakach district
(Journal Of Humanities And Social Science, 2014)
A number of scholars agree that frequent cultivation raises soil bulk density through compaction and destruction of soil structure. However, no research has been conducted to establish how the intensity of farmland cultivated ...
Determinants of aboveground carbon offset additionality in plantation forests in a moist tropical forest in western Kenya
Few studies have attempted to identify factors that contribute to aboveground carbon offset additionality in forest restoration planting in the tropics. Moreover, those that have compared aboveground carbon offset potential ...
