The extreme climate variability that characterizes China's arid rangelands can cause drought and degradation, resulting in dust storms, floods, animal losses, financial hardship and a decline in food availability. Addressing the issues of even greater climate extremes in the future, this book discusses both new approaches and past successes and failures in order to provide the necessary insight to develop sustainable rangeland management strategies, drawing on regional case studies and lessons learned from Australia, Canada and the USA.

"This is a valuable addition to pastoral literature, bringing together rich, but scattered, information on China's rangelands in a form accessible to international readers. It should be in the libraries of institutions dealing with traditionally managed drylands, not only in China."-- (01/01/2010)
