    The oasis effect refers to the creation of a local microclimate that is cooler than the surrounding dry area due to evaporation or evapotranspiration of a water source or plant life and higher albedo of plant life than bare ground. The oasis effect is so-named because it occurs in desert oases. Urban planners can design a city's layout to optimize the oasis effect to combat the urban heat. FAO Arid zone forestry. FAO Manual. In the light of the fact that half the world's countries lie partly or wholly in arid and semi-arid zones, has prepared a manual as a working guide for field technicians involved in arid zone practices.

    ABSTRACT. Desertification is a land degradation problem of major importance in the arid regions of the world. Deterioration in soil and plant cover have adversely affected nearly 50 percent of the land areas as the result of human mismanagement of cultivated and range lands. focused attention on arid, semi-arid and sub-humid areas which are most susceptible to desertification. The central theme of the PACD is the immediate adaptation and appli­ cation of existing knowledge and improved land use, based on assessment, planning and sound management through the application of known ecological principles in areas sub­.

    The desert margins of North Africa are extremely rich in archaeological ruins of the Roman period, evidence of dense settlement 2, years ago in what are now arid and hostile environments. This book presents a detailed interdisciplinary study carried out by archaeologists, geographers and historians in a single region, (the basins of the. Agriculture in Israel is a highly developed industry. Israel is a major exporter of fresh produce and a world-leader in agricultural technologies despite the fact that the geography of the country is not naturally conducive to than half of the land area is desert, and the climate and lack of water resources do not favor farming. Only 20% of the land area is naturally arable.
