Environment and History of the Kenyan Coast

Section under development.

"Natural history is the research and study of organisms including plants or animals in their environment, leaning more towards observational than experimental methods of study." - Wikipedia

This section includes some of the more commonly encountered flora and fauna found on the Kenyan Coast, displayed according to the simplified taxonomic version of 7 hierarchical categories:
Kingdom - Phylum - Class - Order - Family - Genus - Species
A useful way of remembering the 7 groups, is; Kings Play Chess On Fine Grain Sand

In addition to the animals and plants listed, consideration is also given to the landscape, climate and environment which determine the habitats for the flora and fauna of the Kenya Coast.
