Wickens,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. Revegetation has been practiced for many decades in arid and semiarid lands of the western United States, but most often the goal has been to improve grazing for domes-tic animals.

In the past few years the emphasis in North America has shifted from a strictly utilitarian purpose, to revegetation for conservation of plants and animals (West ).

The ability to effectively maintain the functions of the ecosystem is closely related to the assessment of land resources within a conservation-utilization balance.

Land degradation is one of the most significant environmental treats on arid region ecosystems in terms of the use of these resources. In this chapter, the aim was to attract the attention to land degradation Author: Selen Deviren Saygin.

Soils of the semi-arid and arid zones might support few plants on the surface, but a good part of the biomass might be in the soil itself as roots.

Shrubby desert plants often have very hard woody roots that may be a physical barrier to agriculture. In arid and semiarid regions, the growth of temperate shrub is mainly limited by soil water availability rather than air temperature.

Moreover, spring rainfall (in the southwestern United States) and winter‐spring rainfall (in the Mediterranean climate region) are very important water resources for the shrub growth by: Land degradation processes and rates in Arid and Semiarid areas of the world.
