The grassland, and similar range vegetation of palatable and nutritious forbs, is replaced by thorny woody bushes (a notable example is the mesquite invading American rangelands in semi-arid territories) or succulents (such as arid-land chenopods, zygophyl- lums, cacti, cactus-like euphorbias), and rangelands fail to support animal herds, and Cited by:

      The present project of the CABO firstly aims at the compilation of available data on the role of woody plants in agro-eco- systems in semi-arid regions. Secondly, field research has been set up to study crucial elements of the role of woody plants on nutrient cycling and the water balance.   Agrobiodiversity is said to contribute to the sustainability of agricultural systems and food security. However, how this is achieved especially in smallholder farming systems in arid and semi-arid areas is rarely documented. In this study, we explored two contrasting regions in Benin to investigate how agroecological and socioeconomic contexts shape the diversity and utilization of edible Cited by:

      Drawing from the author's extensive fieldwork, this collection of essays examines labour located at the bottom of the rural socio-economic ladder trying to seek a foothold in the urban economy. The volume demonstrates the ways in which this vulnerable group is excluded from a stable and dignified life. The book also highlights the effects of recent policies of globalization on labour. Global distribution of plant genetic resources. In general, the highest number of species of vascular plants is found in the humid tropics and subtropics [].The species number strongly declines from the tropics and subtropics towards the temperate and polar zone north and south of the equator, indicating that hotspots of biodiversity are mainly associated with warm and humid tropical Cited by: 3.
