Abstract

This paper describes and analyses the livestock ecology, pastoral movements and changes in Rendille social groups. New concepts such as "the cooperative herding group", "homogeneous or heterogeneous fission-fusion of the social group" and "the subsistence unit" are presented. The importance of camels, technological adjustments to camel rearing for a stable food resource, the determinants of pastoral movement and its patterns, social adaptations to camel herding, and the peculiarities of camel pastoral society are discussed.
