The Subdivided Group Ranch: Exploring Ecological Implications

  • Esther Mwangi


This chapter explores the ecological implications of transforming property rights regimes from collective holdings to private, individually held parcels as has happened in the four group ranches in this study. The specific question that it addresses is whether these different land use and management regimes (i.e., reaggregation versus non-reaggregated) significantly affect vegetation cover within the study areas, after the influence of dominant environmental factors has been accounted for. The reasons why herders adopt the diverse land use and management arrangements/strategies that they do have been provided in the previous chapter.
