Abstract:

The purpose of the inventory is to determine in detail what topics have been or are being investigated for the worlds deserts, to appraise the reported work, and to disclose areas of study where further work is needed. The series of chapters does not attempt to recapitulate all information known about the deserts of the world, but rather comprises a compendium-guidebook to past and present research. It is based upon a critical review of the published literature augmented by consultations with specialists.
