Bennun, L. & Njoroge, P. 2000. Important Bird Areas in Kenya. Ostrich 71 (1 & 2): 164–167. The process of defining Important Bird Areas in Kenya has been underway since January 1995, with financial…
Major declines in the abundance of vultures and other scavenging raptors in and around the Masai Mara ecosystem, Kenya
Conservation priorities for birds and biodiversity: do East African Important Bird Areas represent species diversity in other terrestrial vertebrate groups?
A New 6a-Hydroxypterocarpan with Insect Antifeedant and Antifungal Properties from the Roots of Tephrosia Hildebrandtii Vatke
The finding suggests that the pterocarpan phytoalexins formed as a result of microbial infection of the cowpea plant may constitute a basis for induced resistance in the plant against M. testulalis.
Dense sampling of bird diversity increases power of comparative genomics
The densely sampled alignment provides a single-base-pair map of selection, has more than doubled the fraction of bases that are confidently predicted to be under conservation and reveals extensive patterns of weak selection in predominantly non-coding DNA.
Quantifying pest control services by birds and ants in Kenyan coffee farms
Status and conservation of Hinde's Babbler Turdoides hindei, a threatened species in an agricultural landscape
A questionnaire survey of local people in Kianyaga showed that killing of birds for food and clearing of Lantana patches are serious threats to this species, which occurs in only one small protected area.
Insect Antifeedants from Tephrosia elata Deflers
Insects in the orders Coleoptera, HymenopterA, Lepidoptera and Diptera, all associated with T. elata seed pods, were identified and found to be active as an antifeedant against S. exempta, E. saccharina and M. testulalis.

- 1 April 1994
There was a consistent decrease in weight from Lmw to pupal weight of 35 % in both males and females over successive generations of rearing two laboratory populations and underline the value of using stable standards in assessing the quality of laboratory reared insects.
