"Since 1962 the Desert Institute of the former Academy of Science of the USSR has been conducting research work in the arid and semi-arid zones of Central Asia. Its outstanding experience in desert and desertification problems, and in questions of sustainable land use under difficult environmental conditions is summarized here. The book also gives an overview of the Institute's consulting activities within the framework of international projects. This is the first publication allowing readers outside the Russian-speaking world to obtain concise information about the specific constraints and development possibilities of central Asian drylands."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
