Abstract
Two Acacia species (Acacia reficiens and A. Senegal) on two topographic sites (mountain slopes and lowlands) were studied for both standing biomass supported and annual aboveground production. The study was laid out as a stratified incomplete block design with the topographic sites as the blocks. This was carried out on the slopes of the Ndoto mountains, South-Western Marsabit, northern Kenya between October 1992 and August 1993. The area is a deciduous shrub land. The rainfall is bimodal with annual median of between 250 mm and 300 mm with an annual variability of 80 %.
