This book describes the ways and means - anatomical, morphological and ecological - by which dispersal in desert plants has evolved to ensure the survival of these species in their harsh and unpredictable environment.
From the reviews: "One of the fundamental aspects in adaptation of desert organisms is the dispersal biology of the diaspores, which again is the basis for the establishment and habitat occupation by plants, the components of plant communities. With "Dispersal Biology of Desert Plants" in the series "Adaptations of Desert Organisms" there is now a comprehensive treatise on this subject available. ... This book breathes the spirit of great desert botanists, e.g. Murbeck and Zohary. It is of basic importance in dispersal biology of desert plants and certainly will be a basis for future works in diaspore dispersal." (Plant Systematics and Evolution)
