About this book

The Mojave Desert presents new research on the Mojave Desert and the contributors discuss the desert from several perspectives including regional threats such as expanding human populations, climate change, atmospheric nitrogen deposition and invasive plants, the impact of roads in a desert ecosystem, soils and plant communities, shrinking aquifers and the monitoring and sustainability of this fragile ecosystem.

This book will be a 'must have' for any scientist, student, or land manager working in the Mojave Desert region. - Walter G. Whitford, Senior Research Ecologist Emeritus, New Mexico University"
