Explores the substantial decrease in an area's biological productivity or usefulness to humans due to human activities. This book covers the history of land degradation, looks at local and regional effects of human interactions with the environment, and compares creative destruction with destructive creation.
Reflecting the combined expertise of the authors, the enhanced second edition of Land Degradation considers the impact of biophysical and social systems on land conditions and identifies principles that further the pursuit of sustainable land use. Accessible to an interdisciplinary audience from students and land managers to researchers and policymakers the book is an important contribution to sustainability science.--Klepeis, Peter
