A list is presented, derived from published and unpublished accounts, of plant vernacular names and uses from the Pokot, Turkana and Marakwet peoples of north western Kenya. Uses are classified under medicinal, human food, human domestic use and livestock fodder. The knowledge and utilization of the flora is seen to be extensive, with 92% of the 888 species recorded having a vernacular name. About 46% of plants are used medicinally by at least one group of peoples, about 24% can be eaten by humans, about 23% are used for domestic purposes and 43% are eaten by domestic livestock.

VERNACULAR NAMES AND USES OF PLANTS IN NORTHERN KENYAJonathan Timberlake⟨sup⟩1⟨/sup⟩National Herbarium Box 8100, Causeway, Harare ZimbabweABSTRACTA list is presented, derived from published and unpublished accounts, of plant vernacular names and uses from the Pokot, Turkana and Marakwet peoples of north western Kenya. Uses are classified under medicinal, human food, human domestic use and livestock fodder. The knowledge and utilization of the flora is seen to be extensive, with 92% of the 888 species recorded having a vernacular name. About 46% of plants are used medicinally by at least one group of peoples, about 24% can be eaten by humans, about 23% are used for domestic purposes and 43% are eaten by domestic livestock.INTRODUCTIONVarious publications in recent years have included indigenous pant names and uses from tribal groups of northern Kenya, e.g. the pastoral. Pokot of East Pokot (Timberlake, 1987), the agricultural Pokot of the Kerio Valley (Tanaka, 1980; Timberlake, 1987), the Turkana west and south of Lake Turkana (Morgan, 1980, 1981), and the Marakwet of Elgeyo, Marakwet district (Lindsay, 1978). The book on medicinal plants by Kokwaro (1976) also includes some names from these areas. The data from these six publications are here presented in a more readily utilizable format.The area covered includes parts of Baringo Turkana, West Pokot and Elgeyo-Marakwet Districts, all in Rift Valley Province. Most of the area falls within the ecoclimatic zones 5 and 6 of Pratt & Gwynne (1977), and ranges in altitude from 2,700 m on the slopes of the Cherangani Hills to below 600 m close to Lake Turkana. There are some hill ranges, e.g. Tiati, and the Kerio Valley runs through part, but generally the landscape is a dry plain with Acacia savanna or bushland. Various seasonal rivers run through the area, some are fringed by Acacia woodland, while the hills, occasionally rising to 2,500 m, often have a different and richer flora. Soils are mostly volcanicMETHODAll plant species mentioned in the above publications are listed, whether or not a name or use was noted. The plant species and uses are recorded for differing purposes, so do not necessarily provide comprehensive coverage. The collections described by Timberlake (1987) and Morgan (1980, 1981) are probably the most comprehensive, covering both wet and dry seasons and full range of uses. Plants described by Lindsay (1978) were restricted to those of medicinal interest only. In most cases voucher specimens were collected and their vernacular names and uses obtained from reliable local informants. Specimens were later identified at the East African Herbarium, Nairobi, or the Kew Herbarium, London.⟨sup⟩1⟨/sup⟩Present address: 3, Rue des Fleurs, Fortune Gate, Bulawayo, ZimbabweThere are various problems associated with collecting ethnobotanical information, not least of which are the knowledge and reliability of the informant, the use, of singular and plural names, names associated with aspects of the plant rather than its 'true' name, and the use of names from other areas which, because they are recorded in a certain area, are thought to be indigenous to it. Different authors have different approaches to overcoming these, and brief discussions on these points can be found in Morgan (1980) and Timberlake (1987). The present list includes all names recorded (with the exceptions given by Timberlake op. cit. for his list), and no attempt has been made to correct orthographic differences or separate plural from singulars.Plants are arranged firstly by division (pteridophytes, gymnosperms and angiosperms, the latter subdivided into monocotyledons and dicotyledons), then by family in alphabetical order. Within each family species are listed alphabetically, and synonyms noted. Vernacular names are given for the three linguistic groups-Pokot, Turkana and Marakwet.Uses of plants are divided into four categories-medicinal (including spiritual), human food, domestic (house construction, household utensils, personal ornaments, etc. ), and livestock fodder. The use of a species by each tribal group for one of these purposes is noted along with the source of information.DISCUSSIONThe list shows a widespread knowledge and use of plants by all tribal groups. Out of 888 species recorded (ten pteridophytes, two gymnosperms, 158 monocotyledons and 718 dicotyledons) 821 (92%) had a vernacular name, although some names were generic and applied to similar members of the same genus or family.Many plants were used for medicinal purposes (407 species, 45.8% of the total, although this high percentage partly reflects the greater interest in this category of use by the observers and that the Marakwet list is only of medicinal plants), 212 species (23.9% of the total) were used for human food (mostly fruits), 202 species (22.7% of the total) for domestic purposes, and 382 (43.0% of the total) for livestock fodder. This last figure however is perhaps not very indicative as the livestock in the area, which includes browsers and grazers, are known to eat a great range of plant material when confronted with necessity, and also because of less rigorous recording of this category of use.ACKNOWLEDGEMENTSThanks go to Jean Brown, formerly of the National Museums of Kenya, who first introduced me to ethnobotany, and to Jan Gillett of the East African Herbarium for early encouragement. I am most grateful to Christine Kabuye and staff of the East African Herbarium for identification of the Pokot material. Particular thanks are due to Bob Drummond of the National Herbarium, Harare, Zimbabwe, who spent many hours checking species nomenclature and bringing it up to date (1990).REFERENCESKokwaro, J.O.
