Abstract
The nutrient status of soils from Macrotermes termite mounds, in and around Kajiado District, reflects that of the subsoil more closely than," some other studies, notably Watson (1977) consequently the growth of vegetation on and around mounds was not noticeably enhanced, except m grasslands and in higher rainfall areas. There was no evidence that mounds acted as wicks.
