"This book is an impressive and truly interdisciplinary collection of outstading scientific contributions on various aspects of semi-arid lands. Even though this book is strongly focused on the semi-arid lands of Australia, agronomists, ecologists, and climatologists from all over the world will find it of great interest. They will not be disappointed."
