This study reveals that knowledge of vegetation resources and their uses are key to designating grazing units and range use patterns. The valuation of vegetation resources is therefore a crucial consideration when attaching economic value to pastoralism. The short duration of this study did not allow for a detailed assessment of the economic value of the plant resources that are representative of the study area. This could be pursued in future studies to show the total economic value of pastoralism.
