Abstract
The Ngisonyoka Turkana of northwestern materials and methods Kenya are nomads who exploit a drought-pulsed Savanna using camels (Camelus dromedarius), cattle (80S indicus), goats, hair sheep, and donkeys from which they obtain their traditional diet of milk, blood, and meat. The livestock use a great variety of forages. Cattle and camels here are grazing and browsing specialists, respectively, while goats, sheep, and donkeys are generalists for both herbaceous and nonherbaceous vegetation (Coppock, 1985, and Coppock et al., 1986).
