About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Chinese

This atlas compiles results from integrated and experimental research done during the last decade on desertification of the Tibetan plateau. Its main purpose is to use maps to present a comprehensive, systematic summary of achievements in this regard. By not only showing current distribution of desertification as a function of its natural geographical environment, but also of the social environment, it facilitates a more in-depth analysis of its occurrence and causes, and of the development of appropriate legislation.
