About this book

The chapters in this section place the problems of vegetation and climate interactions in semi-arid regions into the context which recur throughout the book. First, Verstraete and Schwartz review desertification as a process of global change evaluating both the human and climatic factors. The theme of human impact and land management is discussed further by Roberts whose review focuses on semi-arid land-use planning. In the third and final chapter in this section we return to the meteorological theme. Nicholls reviews the effects of El Nino/Southern Oscillation on Australian vegetation stressing, in particular, the interaction between plants and their climatic environment.

These regions are very sensitive to a variety of physical, chemical and biological degradation processes collectively called desertification.

Reviews

`I can certainly recommend this collection. The undergraduate student should certainly find this a very useful reference text but the general reader will find much to interest and inform.'
International Journal of Climatology, 12

` This book is an impressive and truly interdisciplinary collection of outstading scientific contributions on various aspects of semi-arid lands. Even though this book is strongly focused on the semi-arid lands of Australia, agronomists, ecologists, and climatologists from all over the world will find it of great interest. They will not be disappointed. '
Acta Oecologica, 14:1
