Format: Hardcover
Though the Mojave Desert is a land of temperature extremes and vast spaces without water, it is also home to Native American peoples and numerous rare wildlife and plant species, including some that can be found nowhere else. The Mojave Desert: Ecosystem Processes and Sustainability is an anthology of essays by thirty-eight scientists, all specialists in desert ecology, reporting on the latest specific threats to Mojave Desert as well as options for its natural recovery and active restoration. The importance of gathering long-term data and balancing human impact on the desert are also discussed a length. Individual writings include "Human Population in the Mojave Desert: Resources and Sustainability", "Ecological Effects of Vehicular Routes in a Desert Ecosystem", "Mojave Desert Root Systems", "A Review of Selected Long-Term Ecological Studies of the Mojave Desert Ecosystem", and much more. A scholarly collection of cutting-edge research and insight, The Mojave Desert is an excellent, enthusiastically recommended addition to regional ecological studies shelves and college library collections.
