Reviews - What do customers think about Global Deserts Outlook?

complex systems  Sep 21, 2006
The continuing increase in human populations throughout much of the world drives the relevance of this book. It studies deserts in a global context. How deserts form and change. But the most germane sections of the text concern how humans interact with deserts. And how the spread of deserts can pose a danger to human societies; especially those of nomads and subsistence farmers.

The book is written at a very understandable level for a wide audience. It is suitable for an undergrad or even a high school course.

The material also discusses global warming, a very topical field. The implications of this for desert albedo. Since deserts are a quarter of the planet's land area, perhaps they might mitigate global warming. An open question that deserves more research.
