Abstract:The scholarly papers gathered together in this special issue, covering disciplines from the natural as well as the social sciences, are dedicated to the study of climate-human-ecosystem interactions, examining historical as well as present evidence to consider the relationship between resilience and collapse over the past 200 years. The focus of this volume is on a single location in East Africa, the Baringo-Bogoria basin, centred in Kenya's northern Rift Valley and its surrounding highlands.
