Journal of East African Natural History


A Journal of Biodiversity (since 1910)
Also available at AJOL and BioOne

The Journal of East African Natural History is published jointly by the East Africa Natural History Society (Nature Kenya) and the National Museums of Kenya with assistance from the Royal Museum for Central Africa (Belgium). In 2005 another partner came on board. The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund has made the JEANH one of it's key investments in the conservation of th Coastal Forests and Eastern Arc Mountains Hotspot.

The Journal publishes papers and notes in the field of natural history, broadly defined as the study of organisms in their natural state, relevant to the eastern African region. Of particular interest are contributions that add to our knowledge of the status and conservation of biological diversity in the region.

Since the biological landscape is to a large extent shaped by man, papers on ethnobiology are also featured.
