About this book

For nearly 100 years in the USA federal scientists, university faculty, agriculturalists, natural resource managers, and the interested public have collaborated on research to understand basic ecological principles and their application to arid land management in the Chihuahuan Desert of New Mexico. This book is a synthesis of what has been learned from this unique history of scientific collaborations, with lessons applicable to analogous biomes around the world.

The text is clearly written ... will be welcome by dessert researchers and by anyone responsible for managing rangelands in arid ecosystems.--Quarterly Review of Biology
