Abstract

The study mainly investigates the ability to provide a guideline on the exact areas available for rehabilitation and determine the most desirable species that are 
suitable in order to achieve a desirable success rate. Specifically, this research intends to:
  • Provide a land use map which can further be used to estimate the target forest area to be rehabilitated.
  • Identify areas that can either be planted physically or be protected to allow for natural regeneration.
  • Provide a framework for species site matching.
The area of study is East Mau forest located in Nakuru Country, Kenya and is part of the larger Mau eco system. 

  This site is managed by Space 4 Development
