After publication of our article (Tellen and Yerima 2018)
it came to our attention that we did not acknowledge that
some sections of text and one ﬁgure (Fig. 11b) overlap
with the Master’s esis of Albert Mensah, “Eﬀects of
Eucalyptus plantation on soil physico-chemical proper
ties in iririka sub-catchment, Kiambu County, Kenya”,
which was defended at the School of Pure and Applied
Sciences, Kenyatta University, in February 2016. e sec

subsections ‘Soil moisture content (MC)’ and ‘Soil
