Abstract

Despite the important role trees play in semi-arid areas, very few data are available on growth of trees and distribution in relation to site. The study was carried out in the Njemps Flats of central Baringo, Kenya. Analysis of the woodland structure was achieved by stratifying the area into six separate sites on the basis of tree density and their location relative to ephemeral streams and drainage channels. Results of the survey revealed an extremely low count of seedlings/saplings for the species in the area. This study has also revealed that semi-arid areas can support much higher proportions of woody vegetation than are usually reported
