A delineation between "cool or warm" areas has been proposed by le Houerou & Popov (op. ), based on the 10°C isotherm of the mean minimum temperature of the coldest month. 7°C). 2, the altitudes corresponding with the lOoC isotherm are 2000 m in western Kenya and Uganda. The same applies to Rwanda and eastern Zaire. For on annual fluctuation in soil temperatures (Fig. 4). Under bare soil, temperatures drop from nearly 26°C at the end of the dry season to below 18°C in the middle of the rainy season .

Maitland, 1932; Keay, 1955. g. along cattle tracks, in kraals and night paddocks, as well as soil disturbance appear to be the main factors causing an upsurge of Kikuyugrass in highland areas. The effect of soil disturbance is most evident in recently cleared forest and in cultivated land. On cleared forest land, Kikuyugrass constitutes the dominant grassland and can be productive. Land developed from highland grassland has a lower production potential than that from forest (Morrison, 1966c). Kikuyugrass can be most impressive on land that has been cropped and on sites with a temporary increase in moisture and fertility, also in Zones III and IV.

The areas, in which temperatures deviate by more than 2°C from these equations are shown in Fig. 2; the coastal belt is not included due to the sea's moderating influence.
