Abstract
This paper presents data on tree phenology in a gallery forest on the Lower Tana River, Kenya. The information was collected primarily to' assess temporal variation in the food available to a group of red colobus monkeys (Colobus badius rufomitratus) and thus contribute to an understanding of their diet and ranging behaviour (Marsh, in press a, b.) However, the extreme paucity of phenological studies in East Africa and the unusual character of the Tana riverine forests make the results of wider ecological interest.
