TITLE :Elephant population dynamics in relation to change in the structure and composition of Woody vegetation in Amboseli Ecosystem
However, as Elephant numbers continue to increase the Woody vegetation continue to lose its richness.
Though Elephants are not the sole loss of Woody vegetation, they contribute immensely to changes in the structure and the composition of trees and shrubs in Amboseli.
They mainly depend on Woody vegetation for shelter and food.
Increase in Elephant population translates to increase in grazing pressure, hence decrease in composition of Woody vegetation.
It is projected that if the current trend continues, Woody vegetation will be exhausted, Elephants will reduce drastically or be rendered extinct.
