Abstract

The objectives of the interdisciplinary conference were to integrate: 1) recent research advances; 2) new technologies and applications of science; 3) research on the social, biological and physical dynamics of desert ecosystems; 4) experiences from major antidesertification efforts since 1970. The c130 papers (many abstracted separately) are arranged in over 20 sections, including: climate, underutilized plants, irrigation and water management, biosphere reserves, water policy, animal resources, desert ecology, crop physiology and agronomy, urban environments, desertification, land intensification, halophytes, reclamation, small-scale water management, culture and demography, soils, range management, economic development, new crops, and desert riparian systems. -M.A.Bass
